I started taking Effexor Xr over a year ago. I suffer from anxiety. I've had many side effects: tinnitus(ear ringing)I freaked out the first night, but doesnt bother me anymore, I am just used to it I guess. Constipation is very bad! Ive never had constipation before. I get bruises easily, so I have to be careful not to take aspirin... It gave me insomnia for months, I used to sleep only a few hours a night, wake up very early. I did move a lot in my sleep,kicked my husband all night... but now I take my medication in the morning, so I do not have insomnia anymore. Sometimes get mild headaches. I do get crazy nightmares... especially if i lower the dose. But,even with those side effects, I feel so much better, have so much more energy. I think its worth the side effects. I take 75 mg a day. Most of my anxiety is gone!
Baking soda will increase your blood pressure which is dangerous for your health. Don’t use it ! For your condition, turmeric powder or raw is best to CURE them. I HAD AND CURED THEM myself, as well as my wife, my wife’s nephew. Doses, 2 capsules, 3-4 times a day. ( Do not use it too much, some one over used it had some reaction. It disappear when turmeric usage stopped. ) When all of the over the counter medication including Zantac did no longer help, turmeric stopped my suffering in less than 2 DAYS! continue taking it for 2 weeks, the stopped until now that over 2-3 years, no problem re-occur ! It’s cheap and available at most drugs stores.
