Is it like a benzos
Billie; No this is not a benzo. And the generic effexor xr can make you feel even worse for the first week or two as your body and mind get used to it then after that you get more relief and those orig side effects go away if you do get them. Then you have to continue to take it about the same time each day by the time you have been taken it for 6 to 8 weeks you get the full benefits of this medication because most of the medication in this class SNRI or a SSRI work this way and work much better in the long run. What you can do is ask the doctor for something to help you get through the side effects of this medication.It is for sure worth the try most do very well on it.
