I'm needing to seek some advice from someone who is currently taking Effexor. I myself do not take it. However, someone I care for does. My boyfriend. He is having a difficult time and he has a business that is being neglected due to him shutting down mentally, emotionally. I want to help him in any way I can. I do know what it is like to not have control over your feelings due to depression. However I can't sit back and watch him drown without trying to be some kind of support. Help please!!!
He needs to see a psychiatrist to monitor meds. Often one medication will not help and he might need another to help.. Medications often take
6-8 weeks before they have their full effect. I take Effexor and Lamictal. If there is something in his life that is the cause, seeing a therapist is a huge help.
