    Please help my son who has social phobia and depression is on zoloft and now they are upping this effexor er I pray it helps.

    I take wellbutrin sr for fibromyalgia but that did not help him made it worse.
    Thanks for answering it is a matter of life or death with him.
    Just wanted to see if it has helped he was on 37.5 mg and now up to two so 75mg first day.
    he takes one at night and one at day. He said he was so tired I told him to take them all at night.
    Do you think that would be ok?

    I am sorry I haven't taken effexor before, but I do remember
    seeing other 's here that have.

    I just wanted you to know that I will continue to keep your son in
    my prayers .

    Let us know how he does. Very gentle hugs for you, Pansy

    My doctor had me on this med years ago when it was new. I took myself off of it after a year, not knowing it's one that you need to decrease gradually.

    He asked why.......it was because I felt no different. Then again, no bothersome side-effects either.

    Also Thank you Pansy for the prayers. I keep them coming all the time and he needs them so bad.

    I have seen where quite a few people are on Effexor I am hoping they will answer.
