Hey I am new to the board and I have DP/DR. My question is who here has used, is on or has had success or not had success with the drug effexor? My doc keeps telling me to take it but I am reluctant due to the things I have read about it. I trust everyone on this board and want as many opinions as I can get on the drug. What are the long term side effects I want it all thanks SO much. Also I was wondering my DP/DR is not that bad and it hasn't effected anything in my life. I am able to live with it and I have been for 10 months now. Is it possible to take nothing and have it go away? Idealy I would like to cure myself of this problem with no drugs. Again thanks in advance for all your help.
