My psych doc wants me off of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effexor</span> XR
due to my issues with high blood pressure. I was on 75mg/day for
a little over 2 years (with an increase to 150 and then back to 75mg). I am also on Lamictal, Lithium, and Seroquel - hence another reason to get off of it.
I am on day 4 of the withdrawal from effexor
and I feel horrible. I have extreme vertigo, cold sweats
, and of course the crazy crying for
no reason. I would have been on day 6, but my mother convinced me to take a little to feel better.
