... 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.
