What should I do if I have increasing irritability, occasional blured vision while taking effexor (venlafaxine)?

Call your physician: Taking any new medication that is followed by significant and unexpected symptoms, is best dealt with by immediately calling your physician. Most cases would result in advice given to the patient to stop or cut back on the medication, and to also consider another medication and other approaches for the patient's initial needs.
