Does Effexor Cause Bone Loss
I’ve been taking Effexor for over 20 years. I am 76 years old. I am just now hearing about it causing bone loss. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. No one in my family ever had it and I have always had strong bones. I have never had a fracture of anything my whole life. I have been slowly getting off of Effexor which is very hard to get off of. I am almost down to the lowest dose everyday. It will probably take me another six months or more to get completely off. I have avoided the bone medications due to the side effects which often cause the need for medications to treat the side effects, etc. etc.
