Back in 2003, I think, the doctor prescribed Celexa and it gave me horrible headache. So he switched to Effexor XR, it helps but gave me constipation. He told me to take stool softener with Effexor, it didn't help much. Another side effect I had with Effexor were dry mouth (GOD!), no sex drive (for few years) and little drowsy. Felt weird for two weeks, then its fine.
Last year I came down with IBS-A, I decided to quit take Effexor and BP med (caused diahrea and gassy). It didn't bother me to wean off. Later, I got tired of more soft stool than constipation and decided to take Effexor again. Boy it make me so tired all the time. No wonder it's from Effexor that got me so tired for many years. So I quit taking it.
Soon I will ask the doctor about taking other kind mild depression med. My head (ear drums) were making so much noise, worst than tinintus.
