Hey guys, I'm looking for some answers about how good you think Effexor XR is for treating OCD. It's the first medicine I'll be taking except for Citalopram which I had taken for a short time a few years ago. I'm worried about the withdrawal side effects and the more I read about it, the more I wonder why my doctor prescribed me an SNRI which seems to have more side effects than SSRI's, without even trying an SSRI first, especially since I had also mentioned to her that Citalopram (Celexa) had been very effective for me before. How much did Effexor help you? Do you regret taking it?
