I have had the weird feelings if missed a dose. Also notice that it does make me feel somewhat paranoid and more edgy then past anti-deppressants.

EFFEXOR SHOULD BE PULLED FROM THE MARKET-VERY DANGEROUS DRUG. MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WAS HAVING A HEART ATTACK 24 HRS A DAY. INDUCE PARANOIA AND PANIC ATTACKS WHICH LEFT WHEN I QUIT TAKING IT. EXTREME BRAIN SHIVERS AND VERTIGO FOR WEEKS AFTER I QUIT TAKING IT. BE VERY CAREFUL IF YOU DECIDE TO TAKE THIS DRUG.

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.
