I have been on Effexor since October 07. I have gained so much weight. I'm not really sure it is because of the medication. But the urge to eat is so strong, it is uncontrollable. So, I have started the weening process to get off of it. I didn't take any yesterday and by last night, I was so tired, my aches & pain were worse, and I was extremely irritable. This morning I am lightheaded, however I just took some a while ago. Then tomorrow I won't take any. I am nervous about getting off of it because afraid I will end up in paranoia and anxiety city like before. The doctor said there was a brand new antidepressant called Pristic (not sure if it is spelled right). I may try it later if I need something. Has anyone else tried or did get off of Effexor? Any problems?

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
