Mjewell, good luck on the Effexor. I don't know much about that one, but I am doing good on Lexapro. Like Bell, last week wasn't a very good week, but I had cut mine down to 5mg to see how I would do. Mainly because I was getting so hungry and eating so much. I have gained a few pounds and I really can't afford to do that! I was doing ok, but had a lot of stressful situations with family and freinds, and could tell I wasn't handling it as well as would be if I was on the 10mg, so went back up. So far the hunger hasn't been to bad ... yet. I was having orgasm problems too (and I think we discussed this before) and now I am taking Ginkgo Biloba and it is definitely helping with that, and my sex drive. I've been taking that about a month now, and I can definitely tell a difference. Maybe you should try that too. :)

Good Luck to you, I hope the Effexor works out great for you. Let us know about the sexual side affects and if it does indeed have less. I hope so, it will be good to know!
The Testosterone shots are supposed to help, so maybe it will help your drive. I need no help there, mine has always been in overdrive! Being in menopause and taking Lexapro has slowed it down a bit, but that's a good thing for me. I know I had a friend on Effexor and I don't remember why she switched to Celexa, but will have to find out. Have you by any chance tried Wellbutrin? It's supposed to boost your sex drive and have less sexual side affects and less weight gain. If I keep on gaining on Lex - when I go back to my GYN in August, I think I am going to get some samples of that and try it. Can you tell if your anxiety is any better yet? Hopefully it won't take too long for the Effexor to kick in and make you feel better.

I meant to mention this before, but I think that was terrible of your doctor to have said that to you. That was totally out of line. I just can't imagine him saying that!

Have a good one!
