... there are differences between brand and generics, I'm curious to know what people experienced while on the generic or even on Effexor XR in general. Here's what I get (been on this generic for over 3 months now): 1) My brain feels like it's on fire after I exercise. 2) When I stand up, I get light headed--almost dizzy that I have to hold onto something. 3) I'm more irritable 4) I have no sex drive 5) Hot flashes
Just curious if any of you have experienced these before and is it a side effect? My doctor tends to think generic and brand doesn't matter.
Hello yegshimesh. I can identify with your symptoms as there is a difference in generics versus non generics. Even generics amongst themselves can differ in relation to a person taking them. Some people are more sensitive to say Drug#1 than another person taking Drug#1. Regards pledge
