Went from 40mg of lexapro to 60mg of fetzima, Onset side effects were, increased anxiety, agitation, heart palpitations, consipation, sweaty. after six weeks did not subside and mood did not improve. This is not a calming drug at all. Would not recomend if you have anxiety issues. On to zoloft with fingers crossed.

Switched from Effexor XR 75mg to Fetzima 40mg. Took 20mg first two days then 40mg daily. I feel great and unwanted sexual side effects from Effexor are gone. During transition i read to take Benedryl to help with withdraw from Effexor XR and it WORKS!!! I almost thought I couldnt get through it but the benedryl made it possible. Very happy. So far so good.

I broke out in TERRIBLE rash. I am on 120mg I can't tell it is effective at all. My b/p is HIGH. I get agitated easily. Going to change ASAP. Y This is just a drug for pharmaceutical companies to make money!
