I have been taking Effexor 75 mg for depression and anxiety for many years. At first it had a very good effect. Now after all these years I have the impression that Effexor is not that effective anymore. My depression and anxiety are less severe and more intense, but they`re coming back. As for side effects, I have profuse sweating and nausea.
