    I've just been prescribed this med and was wondering what the views are of those posters who have had or currently have experience of it.

    I'm currently taking sodium valproate mirtazapine and olanzapine though my doc has told me that once I start with the effexor I should stop taking the mitazapine and olanzapine.

    I didn't help me but I know others whom it has helped.

    The thing I really dislike about effexor is that once you start taking it, it is ectremely hard to get off. The withdrawals are terrible. I do think it has been effective though as I notice if i miss a dose, my depression is much worse.

    For me, it had no impact on my depression whatsoever. Neither did I experience any withdrawal symptoms. It was a blank.
