What Works Better For Pain, Wellbutrin Or Effexor?

A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭

Currently taking wellbutrin and wondering if anyone else has had better relief with effexor?. Use sumstriptan for migraines. It has effect on seretonin which seems to have a positive effect as well as stops migraine

Did anyone else taking Venlafaxine become aggressive?

For Those Experienced With Cymbalta, What Are Your Thoughts About It?

A MyChronicPainTeam Member asked a question 💭
