Effexor Convulsion Causes and Reviews


Seizures are symptoms of a brain problem. They happen because of sudden, abnormal electrical activity in the brain. When people think of seizures, they often think of Convulsions in which a person's body shakes rapidly and uncontrollably. Not all seizures cause Convulsions. There are many types of seizures and some have mild symptoms. Seizures fall into two main groups. Focal seizures, also called partial seizures, happen in just one part of the brain. Generalized seizures are a result of abnormal activity on both sides of the brain.

Most seizures last from 30 seconds to 2 minutes and do not cause lasting harm. However, it is a medical emergency if seizures last longer than 5 minutes or if a person has many seizures and does not wake up between them. Seizures can have many causes, including medicines, high fevers, head injuries and certain diseases. People who have recurring seizures due to a brain disorder have epilepsy.

Does anyone else feel that Effexor XR doesn't work as well when they are either having a bout of influenza or herpes, or another viral infection?  I get brain zaps even on my normal dosage (150mg/day) if I am experiencing a cold or herpes outbreak.

Sun, 17 May 2009
Effexor was horrible for me...as soon as I started it I started having panic attacks worse than ever (supposed to help them) scary bad dreams, waking up in a sweat and not knowing who I was, then depression. The first day I expeirenced the panic attacks fast heartrate, I called my Dr. and he assured me that it could not have taken effect that fast, not true! He told me to keep takin the medicine, I trusted his word until I ended up in the hospital feeling like I was loosing my mind. I ended up going into a very deep depression. This was many years ago but I read some of the post and thought I would share my experience. If your told that there is no way that you could be feeling any interactions on the first day, use your own judgement, I trusted my Dr's word and I almost died.
Sat, 11 Jun 2011
I Lost my children because of this drug, i almost took my own life and a life of someone very close to me, I also have liver damage, who do these people think they are making these and giving them to people?
Wed, 02 Dec 2009
Effexor amp; Pristiq is poison - I would know, I started taking it at 16 yrs old, instead of counselling I was given Effexor by a 'psychiatrist drug dealer' I was never offered counselling. I spent of $25,000 on this medication in my lifetime. Discontinuation Syndrome has been my worst nightmare. The brain zaps are disgusting. I wish I could get all of the people who hate venlafaxine together to sue these pharmaceutical companies. They have earnt billions of dollars off the suffering of us and we are the only ones who pay.
