So, whats the deal, is it the general idea that SSRI's are better 4 SA? and thats why u all use them?? if so lemme knw so i can join the club i haven't read about one person using effexor on this site..

No reason 4 this bannana fella, i just think he looks neat
Zoloft, Paxil, Lexapro and Prozac are SSRI's and Cymbalta and Effexor are SNRI's. Because of the withdrawal symptoms, SNRI's are not usually use as a first line of attack.
