Common Questions and Answers about Venlafaxine restless legs

effexor

i am constantly fatigued. i take forever to fall asleep (and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span>s get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>restless</span> at night) and wake frequently before sleeping all day. i always dream, vivdly. some nights i stay up and dont sleep for two nights in a row, because i know i'll wake up feeling awful and tired and headachey. for the last 3 months i have been neither depressed nor manic. my gp just dismisses it all as depression. but i am starting to feel confused and fed up. could there be something physical going on here?
--The drug has a wide range of applications, including treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>restless</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span>s syndrome, motor neurone disease and fibromyalgia. --Investigational uses: diabetic neuropathy antidepressant postherpetic neuralgia acute opioid withdrawal management antidepressant withdrawal aid (proven to be effective, especially with withdrawal from its distant relative venlafaxine (effexor).
I had terrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>restless</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span>s, but that also got better after the first 3-4 weeks. Hang in there! If I can do it, anyone can. I was on Tramadol for almost 5 years. I took 8 a day, weaned to 3, then just stopped cold turkey. Even at that low dose, I had miserable withdrawal, but I can say that I feel really good now, most of the time anyway!
For a year and a half I have been having painful nighttime leg cramps/spasms. They are excruciating, not like what I hear about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>restless</span> leg syndrome. Now, a few days ago, I woke up having a spasm, like I normally do, and then it almost seemed to crawl up my body and I had a seizure. Two people witnessed it. I was taken to the ER and had a ct scan, all ok. Now I am seeing a neurologist. I had an EEG done, also ok, but have a 72 hour EEG and a brain MRI scheduled.

Also if i stop taking my daily 25mg at least i become agitated, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>restless</span>, with motor activity and becomes nearly manic. In my view one of the best drugs this is why they reckon the 4th sold drug worldwide. The only 2 AP's I use are risperidone and seroquel so really i can't judge compared to the others like the newer abilify or the stronger zyprexa say. There is a point here though is that even if I find it excellent for me it can be not suitable for you.
Even with ambien CR I am up, up up. Tried meletoinin, take the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>restless</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span>s stuff every night. But can't seem to sleep through. I did however take the most fabulous nap this afternoon. I was never able to sleep on the pain meds so it has been a long time since I've napped. And actually I am thinking that the anxiety and lethargy must have something to do with the lack of sleep. What do you think?
I have only had 2 pills and surprisingly i just have the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>restless</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span>s. It is manageable! I will take a pill around around 5 then before bed.
it went cold turkey, with the help of thomas's receip and it was a lot easier with the vitamins, i had tried to quit on my own many times but the lack of energy and severe depression got me every time , no to mention the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>restless</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span>s that made sleeping very difficult. i am now 13 months clean thanks to everyones support here and all the information i learned about pain meds.
Sometimes several times a day, sometimes none at all. I also have been getting increasingly stiff in my lower back, neck and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span>s. And my feet are feel like boards they are so stiff and very painful. Also getting a bit moodier than normal and having some trouble concentrating. I hope that I don't alarm anyone here but after doing a lot of internet searching and then speaking with a nurse friend and a doctor - not a formal visit, just a private conversation - things may be pointing to MS.
I get cold sweats, horrible brain electric like feeling zaps, my sentences are so unstructured, I'm exhausted, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span>s hurt, my heart pounds, I can't sleep, I can't eat which makes it hard to take effexor EVERYDAY because I had to take it on a full stomach. Kinda hard to get a full stomach on effexor. I cann't even type all that happeded, it was pure hell. The shaking was awful too. Did not effect my sex drive tho. SNRI's seem to not effect that, SSRI's however, killed my sex drive.
including my ear lobes, hands and wrists, feet and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span>s, and my sides. It is usually a quick stabbing or throbing pain that lasts a short time and then is gone just as quickly as it came. Unlike many of the people above, I usually will not get another pain for quite some time after. There have been times when I will not have another pain for days. Although on occasion one pain will lead to another within minutes, but always in a new spot.
