Hello everyone, I started on a low dose of Venlafaxine four days ago and I know one of the side effects is constipation, (and boy howdy!) I was wondering if anyone was dealing with THAT side effect and what you have done that helped you. Having this side effect is making my anxiety worse πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«

      Oh, good to know. Yesterday I ended having to take 2 laxative because nothing works πŸ™„πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’«. I'll give those two a try, thank you ❀️

      thank you, I know it's only been a few days, hoping the symptom ease's off some. I did take 2 laxative today 🀞 Do you still get side effects? Being on it for so long?

      I have been on the medication for years now and it has helped me tremendously I told my Dr about the constipation and he gave me meds to help me go. Also the over the counter ones helped me till I saw my Dr.
