Effoxor Withdrawal - Help!After speaking to my primarily
doctor about the redness on my
chest, hand and nose, she decided to take me off the Effexor my shrink had prescribed for my depression and anxiety. She told me it was going to be difficult and 8 days laters I have gone to hell and back. The crying,
the brain zaps, the loss of appertite (which I like, but not of mine of choice) and haziness are awful. I used to say the hardest thing I did in my life was quit smoking cigarettes 29 years ago. But it looks like quitting Effexor is going to top the chart.
From 2 - 150mg pills a day now I take just 1 - 150mg pill. I know I still have more battles to face alone and with my wife as I continue to get off this drug. It is so hard to handle the withdrawals.
I can not believe my shrink subjective me to this crap - Effexor. I call my insurance provider yesterday to cut off seeing this doctor.
When I shared with this doctor an article that Efferor
was an extremely addictive drug. He told me very thing in life is addictive like food, water and the necessitites of life. Perhaps he would like to drink 300mg Efferox-enhanced water everyday! And sees the hell one gets when when coming off this painful drug. I have not eaten apple pie in 6 months and have not suffered any adverse reactions.
When I will feel like myself? Where is the end of the tunnel.
Any suggestions? Thank you for listening to my rumbling.
Now Xanax and my Ipod are helping me cope. My primary doctor tells me to hang in there.
