Effexor Suicide Attempt Causes and Reviews


Suicide is the tenth most common cause of death in the United States. People may consider suicide when they are hopeless and can't see any other solution to their problems. Often it's related to serious depression, alcohol or substance abuse, or a major stressful event.

People who have the highest risk of suicide are white men. But women and teens report more suicide attempts. If someone talks about suicide, you should take it seriously. Urge them to get help from their doctor or the emergency room, or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). It is available 24/7.

Therapy and medicines can help most people who have suicidal thoughts. Treating mental illnesses and substance abuse can reduce the risk of suicide.

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.
