    Last year I was in a very bad way. I was terribly depressed and the antidepressant I was on wasn't working. My doctor switched me to Effexor and it has been a life-saver! I have no side effects and really like it. I take 225 mg. a day and have no problems. Are you on it or are you considering taking it?

    I started on it almost two months ago. I am on 150mg a day, but I think they may take me up to 225mg also.

    It made me a little nauseous the first two or three days, but otherwise I have no complaints. It even helps with the irritable bladder problems that surgery could not fix. I still have the frequency, but not the incontinence.
