staring on a new Med

Post by qwerky90 on Tue Apr 27, 2010 5:19 am

I was wondering if others have tried Venlafaxine. And what they have thought of it.

I have to stop my citalopram, then go on these.

Anything will be helpful

Thanks

I have not tried Venlafaxine but from what I have heard from others it is good. Just watch for side effects.

Hey, Ms. qwerky Very Happy

Here are the Medsafe Links to their Consumer Medications Information Sheets on Venlafaxine, which is also known as Efexor Tablet (from Wyeth (NZ) Ltd & as Efexor-XR Modified release capsule (from Pharmacy Retailing (NZ) Ltd t/a Healthcare Logistics):

http://www.medsafe.govt.nz/Consumers/cmi/discontinued/Efexortab.htm and
http://www.medsafe.govt.nz/Consumers/cmi/e/Efexor-xr.htm

The really Great News about any and all of these Meds, is that its not compulsory to have any of the 'side effects' so whilst its a good idea to maybe save these Linsk etc and refer to them from time to time, I wouldn't get too bogged down in any 'effect' list.

Yep, someone has to show signs of some of them I guess, but there ain't nothing that says you have to. Many users don't exhibit of have side effects from any of the meds - lucky sods.

Paddy.

Please bare with me for the next few weeks, i'm completely off meds now, so might be a bit over the top? but will be on the next ones this time next week.

So what i'm saying i suppose, is please be patient.

Thanks

Venlafaxine is so far the only medication I have not been able to tolerate. It gave me nausea and a bloated feeling that simply didn't go away.

But as Paddy says, everybody responds differently.

Hey Qwerks I have been on Venlafaxine and I didn't have a lot of side effects, it just didn't work for me. I do know a few people that are on it and they have had great results so I hope you will be one of these people and that it works out for you. Good luck! flower

well thats something to look forward to...what about a bath with a good book and a face mask too and some scented candles.
.because you deserve it!
then get out a lovely movie for after and if you fall asleep its all good...
there is something special about knowing everyone else is out there in the rat race and you are tucked up pampering your self eh?

enjoy!

I don't want to be here. i'm a waste of SPACE and time. I don't deserve to have my job, they should find someone more capable.

I deserve to rot and and die. That is what I want to do. I don't want to live any longer, it's not worth it.

I'm never going to be happy, i'm never going to get the trust back from where i work at the moment.

F**K my life

thank you

well i'm going to have a week off work.

I have been prescribed lorazepam to help my symptoms and help the anxiety.

I get to start my Venlafaxine 2 days earlier.

So hopefully all of this will help

i think i'm going to go the the hospital for a couple of days to be looked after.

only thinking that because if I was at home i'd be worse of ...
1. Because i'd be by myself
2. I'd sleep all day
3. I might not be able to keep my thoughts at bay
4. The doc sugessted it this morning, and I flatly said no, when it would be the best thing, until I start my new meds on Friday at least.
