    Has anybody been on this? I've never felt so good on an antidepressant, it's an amazing drug (for me anyway). :biggrin:

    I've been on it, it made me weird, and stuff, glad it's working for you though, Ruby! :biggrin:

    I tried it and it took my sex drive, then after two more days I was in hospital throwing up poisoned by it. So it wasn't for me. If it does the trick for you I'm happy for you however.

    Hey wow! I just started on it about a month ago and I get exactly the same feeling. Makes me feel almost normal. Takes a lot now to get me feeling low now!
    Yey for Venlafaxine

    Glad it's working for you Ruby. But please keep close monitor of it. It worked great for me for about the 1st year. Now it has little effect and I am at the largest dose the doc can give me without legally overdosing me on it. Have had to combine some other meds with it. Oh and never try to just quit it cold turkey. This one is nasty if you do. You have to wean off it. Good luck!
