    I'd previously been on Effexor XL - side effects included weight gain and impotence.

There is no cure all and everyone has bouts with breakdowns, but realizing how well this has controlled the mood during the good times is important, thanks.

I have tried to stop taking it but, o ... Show Full Comment
