Hi, 28 y/o F here - starting Effexor either tomorrow or the next day, for the very first time. Long term clinical depression. Was initially on Mirtazapine for 3-4 years (a total nightmare), then had a period of time without medication, and was then on Lexapro for about eight years (which was good, but has now ran its course).
I’m a little nervous about starting Effexor, and I’m particularly curious about what the first few days were like. After the first few days passed, did things ease a bit for you? How about after a few weeks? Long term, my major concern/worry is weight gain (even though my trusted doctor has reassured me it is a ‘weight neutral’ med). Thank you!
My current lease ends mid-late May next year (2023). So, about six months from now. I want to move to a different suburb after this lease ends, and this is the first time I’ve had to move out of a rental to a different one. I want to make the process as low-stress as possible, so how much time do you think I should give myself to look/apply for a new rental? I know some people leave it last minute, but I want to hear from others. I don’t know how many applications agents usually receive. The suburb I want to move to is in north-east Melb, about 35 mins drive from the CBD. Also, do most people end up paying 1-2 months’ lease on both properties during the crossover period whilst waiting for their current lease to end etc? Thanks in advance.
