The side effects are harsh and I'm lost in terms of what to do. I'm taking this medication to control my bipolar. I have lost my sex drive, and have numbness in my fingers. I started off taking Celexa at the highest dose and this did nothing. Then, I switched to Wellbutrin XL and have been on this for the last 12 years. The Wellbutrin XL was given for my severe depression. For 4 months, I've been on Effexor at 150mg daily and have lost complete interest in sex. This combination was working when first started, but now things are not going so well. I'm beginning to feel numbness in my fingers . After the 3rd month, I feel my bipolar symptoms are coming back and I'm miserable finding it hard to work. I'm not sure if Effexor is working. Is any one else having the tingling feeling in their fingers?
