I speak to my psychiatrist yesterday about the effects of long term effexor use for major depression recurrent. She says studies show that treatment with effexor is more effective in preventing cognitive degeneration than non treatment. I discuss the reports I read online of real people discussing the effects of effexor use … memory problems, word retrieval problems, fogginess, disassociation. She claims this is ‘heresay,’ not relevant, not scientific. My experience once again is discredited. Where does one go for validating one’s reality?
Some info on Effexor (Have not been able to find anything relative to long term use)
