      I began taking Effexor XR 75mg per day approximately one year ago. The medication is very expensive so my doctor gave me a month of samples because I do not have insurance.

      The first week on the medication was hard for me because of some of the side effects. I suffered from dizziness, upset

      Even though it is very expensive and I don’t have insurance I continue to take the Effexor XR because it really helps with my depression.
