I've been on this medication for 4 months after being taken off Prozac. I'm taking 150mg once a day. I had a lot of side effects while taking this medication like crying, brain zaps, vertigo, weight gain because high appetite. When I was on Prozac I loved it but it was maxed out and stop being effective. My doctor put me on this medication (Effexor). This medication is dangerous and I'm now afraid to go off it because of the side effects I'm already feeling. However, I hate being on this medication at the same time. A lot of side effects and I feel it's destroying different areas of my life i.e. family, work and personal. I'm waiting on a call from my doctor to see what he says. I'm afraid he'll tell me to increase dose which will worsen side effects or wean off it which means I'm back to square one. I'm so irritable. DO NOT GO ON THIS MEDICATION.
