Advice & Tips: avoid getting on this treatment , even though it is efective somewhat in helping my depression ( and I have tried many type's of meds for over 20 years ) and at this time after changing from Lexapro to Effexor ( since Lexapro stopped helping ) Effexor seemed to be much more effective until I forgot once to take my daily dose for several days ....I started to experience the brain flops and did not know why ...well after doing some research I found out why! Now I " never leave home without it"
