Question: Effexor

 EvilZebras - Fri Apr 01, 2005 10:59 pm

I just started taking these pills called Effexor and I was wondering if they had any long term effects or symptoms? I heard they could serverly damage your liver.

User avatar Hi EvilZebras,
I am not aware of any documented long term side effects of Effexor. However, one of the warnings of this medication is that your doctor should be aware of any liver problems that way dosage adjustments may be made and periodic blood work can be done to monitor liver function.
