I have been on venlafaxine for many years and believe it has completely changed me. I used to be very sociable and outgoing. But the person I am now, I dont enjoy going out and I am not very sociable.
I seem to have gone from extraverted to interverted and no longer enjoy the things I once did.
It has also taken a massive affect on my libido.
It has helped with my depression, I no longer get upset all the time.
But I do miss the person I used to be.
