    I've had the constipation, but not the other symptoms - does anybody you know have 'flu or a bad cold? Are you sure you're not ill with something like that? If not I suggest contacting your doctor.

    Hi Jayne

    Sorry to hear you are having a bad time. When I first started venlafaxine I had nausea and the jitters, but that passed after a week. I eat fruit and find that helps the constipation. Don't get any aches and pains, though.
