Taking Effexor

Just started taking Effexor (for my anxiety and depression) and was wondering if anybody knew if it has any blood thinning that I need to worry about?

I'm not sure, but a quick look at the side effects....I think it could thin blood. I'm not a doctor but I think I wouldn't feel comfortable taking it and I'd ask my doctor for something else.
Diagnosed September '09 with one CM centered in the right insular cortex/basal ganglia. Saw many, many doctors and had surgery 12/10/10 with Dr. Spetzler. I am thrilled to have this bleeding thing out of my head even though I suffered a stroke during surgery. Have had/ continue to make an amazing recovery. http://www.thankfulforeveryday.blogspot.com
