Hi all, 

I just found the official channel to report drug side effects and withdrawal symptoms: 

http://www.adrreports.eu

I think it's important that we as patients report what's going with side effects and withdrawal symptoms. In my experience doctors either don't believe us or have no time to report anything. Pharmaceutical companies seem to manipulate their studies as well. 

The more reports the agencies get, the more likely it is that someone will research a cure for withdrawal and side effects. 

Cheers, 

L

      Whoops, sorry. I posted the correct link, but it's waiting to be moderated. On the page you should see one of the links saying "EN". It's the 8th from the top. If you click there, you get to the English version.

      Hi Laura I went on this do I just search Venflaxatine or Effexor or Venlalin I did look but didn't c but knowing me I probably did it wrong. I went on report a side effect and clicked on Accept? Just really want to get my experience on here, I can't believe all this time it's been a side effect. I also remember wen the doctor did try reduce ME from 225mg to 175mg and I hit rock bottom that her reply was that wouldn't affect U after a couple days PMSL it's awful coz we R the so called " crazy " ones so ppl don't listen it must be in our heads lol! And after discovering this site I am so relieved but also think from wot everyone on here has said about reducing venflaxatine that was way too much of a drop!!

      I just wanted to update this for future readers: We figured out that if a medicine is not in the database of the yellow card scheme yet, you can just enter it as free text and save it. You could even write "Chocolate bars" and it would accept it.
