Lack of appetite. No emotions. What is wrong?

I take effexor XR 75 mg once a day. I have no appetite ever. Sometimes i go days without eating and don t even realize it. When i eat, i never want to be eating. Its like im just doing it because i have to. Food never sounds good. Also, i ve noticed i feel almost no emotion. Im always in a generally good mood... but when something tragic happens its like im completely immune to it. I feel no sadness. I feel no fear, no worry. When it comes to relationships.... i can take it or leave it. When me and my girlfriend of four years broke up.... She was devastated. Crying, saying how hard it was emotionally. I felt nothing. I haven t cried or even came close to crying in a very long time. Why is this happening? Is this normal?

Hi Cablejm2 ! You are taking Effexor for your this medicine give you depression. If you taking this medicine for long time, do ask for change, cause like other psychotic drug it has bunch of side effect. This medicine made you emotionless so you can deal with life situation. Now take the advantage leave this medicine, do exercise and make hobbies and live your life. And don't leave medicine at once give gap gradually. And get out of this medicine trap. See you again bye.
