Does Effexor Make You Tired
Which antidepressant causes weight loss? I've been on many and last one was Effexor XR as others make me tired. I put on weight. Am depressed grieving
Depressed & grieving: Active grieving of a loss needs support more than medication. If the grief has become depression with poor self esteem, ongoing vegetative signs (changes in sleep, energy, appetite etc), & worthlessness etc antidepressants may help. Wellbutrin does not reliably cause weight loss, but it's less likely to cause weight gain than some others. Lexapro may be relatively weight neutral also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I've been on Effexor XR for 11 weeks. While I do feel some relief from my anxiety, i'm always tired. Why is this?
Anxiety under control with effexor. Depression is not better. Any add on medications to help with depression? Very tired all the time.
Yes, possibly: You may want to check your vitamin d level -- if less than 50, it can predispose to depression. Also l-methylfolate helps many people increase responsiveness to antidepressants. Third, fish oil at least 2-3 grams/day [1-2 grams epa, 500-900 mg dha/day]. Psychotherapy is an essential part of treating depression and anxiety. Ask your psychiatrist for referral if s/he does not provide this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Paxil for 12 years for Panic. Stop working. physician put me on 40 mg Viibrid. After a year, added 37.5 of Effexor. Tired. No sleep. Still panic.
Panic not resolved!: I'm sorry to hear u've been struggling with panic d/o after what sounds like a long period of time without sxs at all. I'd talk with your doc. Has anything in your life changed recently? Are you under more stress? A psychotherapy could help here. A tradtional anxiolytic SSRI might be the route your doc eventually goes. Good choices may include Luvox, lexapro, or sertraline, but I defer to ur MD :) ...Read more
Fatigue&drowsiness, i met 2nd psychiatrist, he is professor, he said no need to use stimulants, exercise cbt!effexor 75x3, i'm confused & tired, please help?
Why...: Instead of seeing a doctor to find out how to treat the fatigue and drowsiness, i would suggest you see your pcp to find out why you're fatigued and drowsy. In the meantime, the little things count. Regular bedtime, awake time, good amt of sleep, healthy 3-a-day diet, regular exercise (mornings if possible). One thing to consider, it could be the meds--direct side effect or rebound from ea dose. ...Read more
I'm taking 25 mg of Zoloft with 1mg of clonazepam, I tried 50 mg of Zoloft but I felt too tired all the time, I still experience anxiety so my doctor is considering switching me to Effexor, I have panic disorder, was wondering which medication is best for
It depends: What medication works best depends on a host of factors and that is why there are so many to choose from. I am concerned that the emphasis is only on medications. Professional behavioral therapy can be very effective and it is very safe. Sometimes it even allows one to eliminate medications all together. There are a host of other interventions and modalities that can also help with anxiety. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
