Effexor Withdrawals - Day 8

Hi - I am new to this site .. I am currently on day 8 of Effexor withdrawals. I have the standard symtpoms - Dizzy, vertigo, muscle spasms, wicked HORRIBLE stomach pains that make me cry, nausea, headache, nitemares, irritability, feeling like my eyes are loose and wobbling all over, wanting to vomit but can't, hungry but cannot eat due to horrible abd. pains.
I NEED HELP!!!!!!!

I am a single mother to a 7 yr old boy and I just cannot be suffering like this. I have been crying right now for two days .. at day 8 it is getting worse and not better.. I was hoping it would be easing off and instead I want to crawl into a hole and die I am so miserable.
What can I do?

I was on 75mg for a year and ween down to 37.5 for 1 month and then nothing... I can't do this alone and I need some relief.. anyone .. Please

Hello Lotusgirl

You can consider taking Nux vom. 30 at night and Sulphur 30 on the subsequent morning. This cycle shall be done for a week. Meanwhile if there's appreciable relief or unwanted aggravation stop taking remedies.
