In the clear....well sort of

I've posted a couple of times. Long story short, I had my c spine MRI. My doctor is, well, slooow! I decided to pick up my report.

Does anyone take Effexor (venlafaxine) for depression?

I saw my MS specialist last week for my yearly visit. I am SPMS now after RRMS since 1990. Lately I have been depressed about all the things I can't do anymore. The doctor said I could try Effexor. I would like to hear any pros/cons from anyone who has taken Effexor for depression. Thank you!

Most of the articles refer to a recent The Lancet article which describes a study of 24 MS patients who underwent the HSCT procedure originally designed to treat Leukemia patients. After extracting stem cells from the MS patient’s own blood, a ...
