    I felt worse before I felt better, and it was about 6 weeks before it had any significant effect.  After that I found the Effexor was great.  I was on it for years and it took away depression and anxiety.  I am sure you will feel better soon.

      Thanks Anne.  Hoping as I had been on for 7 years and only halved the amount that it will kick in sooner. The longer you feel like this the harder it gets.

    Hi Valerie,

    It may take up to six weeks before you feel the full effects of this drug. Most of this type of drug take similar times. You should be feeling more settled after two weeks but patience is the key here. You will feel better.
