I take effexor tabs 150mg for severe depression, ASAD (advanced social anxiety disorder), and partly for inattentive ADHD.
I take it once a day and make sure i take it just before bed. Otherwise, within an hour, the immediate side effects are seemingly something of science fiction. My head "spins," i become very reclusive and focused on whatever it is that i'm doing (UNLESS what i'm doing has anything to do with communicating with any other person). With in a few minutes of these effects comes the onset of the most severe, unbearable nausea i've ever encountered; and don't waste your time trying to induce by anymeans....cause then you just feel crappy and nauseated WHILE you're throwing up (and after). If i don't take this med literally as i'm laying down for bed, then the strangest of all the side effects i've ever encountered with any med sets in....it makes me unbelievably tired, lethargic, and pensive, that all i want to do is sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep RIGHT NOW.....but it simply will not let me fall asleep. It's like the strangest mixture of upper/downer effects i've ever encountered.
Given all of this, I STILL have trouble deciding which outweighs the other; the side effects, or the benefits.
My social anxiety is, by no means, gone, but not so bad that i come in late to work just so i don't have to look anyone in the eye. my depression just up and disappeared like a fart in the wind. and as for adhd...well....that's a negative, ghost rider. my mind is still everywhere and nowhere at the same time.
all in all, the side effects do fade after about 45 mins (except for the strange somnolence/insomnia) so i find that my vote has to go for the benefits, as i pair with vyvanse for the adhd. The side effects can be QUITE unbearable, and i would definitely say this is ABSOLUTELY NOT for those with a weak stomach. If you can muscle through those awful 45 mins of complete and utter despair, then the other 23hrs and 15mins of your day should hover somewhere between peachy and keen.
