Hello, I was recently diagnosed with lupus and have been in hydroxychloriquine for a month. This week my doc put me on the anti depressants Effexor and I am feeling dizzy and light headed. Has anyone ever experienced this? Thanks for your support!
I'm on those exact same meds. Effexor can give you strange symptoms when you first start taking it. For me I was yawning uncontrollably for first few days, and had difficulty falling asleep for a while.
Effexor/Venaflaxin take some time to build up in your system. I had nightmares when I first started it but it has helped with depression and with pain. I would have had to stop work a long time ago if it didn't work as good as it does. I also take the plaquinil/hydro combo.
