While on effexor: majorly delayed ejaculation. Half of the time it was impossible to.
While missing a dose: major withdrawl symptoms, jolts (hard to describe - like an electrical feeling, like a 'firing' pulse) and 'brain zaps' that were also similar to the electrical pulse. Extreme dizziness and sense of displacement, basically unable to function when missing a dose. This also lasted when I got off the med, even though I tapered down. I had to do an herbal detox and stay in for 2 weeks, except for work (which is a desk job).

Turns you into an emotional zombie. Weird, displaced feeling, a lot of the time. General lack of caring in general(not the good kind.) Damned hard to ejaculate, your unit will give up before you do. Makes you REALLY sensitive to any other drugs, OTC and otherwise(it is a psychotropic, it'll enhance anything else you take to an uncomfortable level). Coming off the stuff is living hell, even when tapering down. They've actually started prescribing anti-depressants to people tapering off the stuff, that's how bad it is.
Now, it is the end all, be all of last resort anti-depressant/anxiety meds, and can be a life-saver, litterally. Everyone I've met that's been on it, hated it. No one that I know that's taken it will ever take it again.
Oh, I was on 450mg for most of the time I was on it.
The Truth is, there is no Truth.

She never had any seizures prior to taking WB or any medical conditions other than being a smoker with an abnormal PAP test which prompted prescribing the WB.
Fortunately I don't smoke cigs or need prescription anti-depressants.
Effexor is nasty with sides for many. I dated someone that was taking it and I can remember the zaps she experienced trying to come off it.

I started hating it when I had my first and last panic attack ever, and read that effexor can cause major panic attacks. That, and the sexual sides made me want to finally stop it and try to deal with depression in other ways. That's when I started to hate it, when coming off of it. Before that I must say, I completely loved the drug but felt I should have also had some councilling to go with it and not have used it as a crutch for so long. Since then I've also discovered that my depression/anxiety was almost more than likely linked to low testosterone levels.
