I have been on 300 mg of Effexxor for about 1 year and I am very dizzy, have vision problems and have brain shocks like... I also have horrible abdominal bloating. My doctor took me off of Zanax because it is "addicting". If I would have know that Effexxor is so horrible and hard to get off, I would have never never never taken it! I only had some stress and since put on this found out PCOD inwhich could have explained the crying and hormonal issues...
