1 year using Effexor XR and is still working great. It's great to feel normal again. Only issue I've had is when I missed a dose. "WOW" wierdest feelings I've ever had. I won't try to go to work if that happens again.

Developed high blood pressure (190/90) and had lazer surgery on my eyes to reduce the pressure in my eyeballs. Helped with depression but could have killed me also.

I don't know what I would do without Effexor!! The only downside is if you miss a pill...your body will DEFINITELY remind you with weird shock sensations.
