I was just wondering if anyone has had the same experience that I've had. I'm a 30 year old male who had been taking various types of anti-depressant/anxiety medications for the past 2 years. About 5 months ago, my Dr. put me on Effexor and it has seemed to do quite well for me (as long as I take it regularly). I've been keeping up with all of my doses, but recently I took a turn for the worse and fell into a depression, while on my meds. Is this normal? Has anyone else had this experience? Just wondering.
