My partner has taken effexor for the last 2-3 as treatment for mild OCD and overall it's been very effective. We recently discovered though that her blood pressure was seriously elevated. She was convinced that effexor SR was the culprit so she immediately sought help to ween herself off. She went through a month or so of gradual reduction, which was awful for her, and it's been a further 5 weeks since she took her last dose and the withdrawal symptoms are still absolutley horendous.
i tried to not take it at all today( my doctor suggested cutting the dose in half for 1 week and then going to every other day for 1 week) but i got the brain zaps and actually had thoughts about killing myself(although i love my life and am certainly NOT suicidal) and it had only been a few hours past when i was supposed to take it. After reading others' feelings on ilight>effexorilight> ilight>withdrawalilight>, i am relieved to know that i am not alone-but i still gave in and took a pill.
i decided to stop taking ilight>effexorilight> because of the side effects. i found the ilight>withdrawalilight> one of the most difficult things i have ever done. i tapered the dose over 6 weeks and faced constant headaches and emotional volatility. if you could chart my emotions, they chart would look like the DOW these days. i ended up sending emails to business associates that i never should have sent and picked fights with at least half the people i know.
i go to sleep 9 or 10 pm and wake up between 1-230 am. Does anyone know if this is a ilight>withdrawalilight> symtom if so ilight>howilight> long does it take to get back to normal. i also notive sex drive is slowloy coming back and i also notice that i'm not snacking at all and \i'm loosing weight. Does exfessor have anything to do with weight gain.
There are so many ilight>withdrawalilight> effects and it is so difficult to distinguish between ilight>withdrawalilight> effects and any underlying anxiety.
Over the past 4 months, i have slowly withdrawn from effexor XR (75 mg) which i was on for 3 years. i am now 2 weeks with no medication. i tolerated the symptoms of withdrawl but now am feeling a return to my "waves" of anxiety and wonder how long it might take to reregulate my body. i also spoke with my doctor who recommended 5htp and wonder about its use.
i really want to get off the effexor and hope to stay on the wellbutrin as ilight>longilight> as the symptoms fade. ilight>howilight> ilight>longilight> should i wait before stopping the ilight>effexorilight> again? My psych prescribed all this stuff, however it's impossible to get an appointment and i'm fine taking charge, would just like some support. Thanks, this site really makes me feel a lot better. Good luck to you all!
i thought i was falling into an even deeper depression than the one that started me on this stuff. Please, someone, tell me ilight>howilight> ilight>longilight> this ilight>withdrawalilight> lasts and if Any of you have acctually been depression free since! Finding you is the first thing i have felt good about in a long time. i am not alone. Bawling like an idiot as i type this, but not alone. Thanks for listening. Tan.
hey everyone, i have a good tip to get through the ilight>withdrawalilight> pains of ilight>effexorilight>. First off i have been on ilight>effexorilight> for 1 1/2 years. At first it was great and only up until this fall it was starting to be clear to me that it was not helping with my depression anymore. i was told by my doc never to go cold turkey with this med that i was to tapper it. i was told if i went off cold turkey i was risking brain siezures. i am tappering off now from 75mg a day to 37.5 a day and then 37.
i have been totally off effexor XR 150 mg for one month now. i have been experiencing all the "normal" withdrawal symptoms of effexor, but how much longer will this go on? Shouldn't i be seeing a decrease in these side effects after a month of being clean?? Thank you for your response.
