I had quite a few side effects on this one similar to seroxat

Aching muscles
Serious back ache
Morning sickness
Lack of Appetite
Lethargic
Literally Zombied


Thumbs down for me <_<

I would never recommend this drug to anyone. I took just one tablet and my heart was racing so fast that I thought that my number was up! I also went into a cold sweat and then my heart went into arrythmia. Seemingly this is a rare side effect of the drug but when I was in hospital, a girl in the bed opposite's, blood pressure and heart rate increased dramatically on the same drug so I am not sure if it really is that rare. Taking this drug scared the hell out of me so much that I now have a phobia about taking any prescription drug. Its only recently that I am able to take a couple of paracetomol without 'waiting for something to happen'. I now have a problem about going to the dentist because they will have to inject me with a local anaesthetic and to me, this is just another drug which has the potential to do me harm. Illogical I know. I wish I had never been given Efexor, it has ruined my life! :(
