I have been on Venlafaxine for about 18 months and due to symptom of sweating profusely, it was decided that I would wean myself off it. I was taken 75mg twice daily. After consulting with my GP Thursday before last, it was reduced to once a day until Thursday and then stopped it.
I have been feeling absolutely dreadful - nausea, dizziness, palpatations, feeling 'drunk' and pupils have been the size of pin pricks!! Loss of appetite and terribly middle back pain. I'm not sure if these symptoms are related to stopping the medication or not? If it is, any idea of how long this will go on for? I am due to start something else Thursday but if I'm still feeling like this, I am seriously thinking of not starting something else...can't carry on like this. I've spent most of yesterday and today flat on my back because of the awful feeling in my head. I was a bit concerned about the palpitations as I have a heart murmur and a 'dicky' valve. Could this be made worse by the flutter feeling in my throat? Any advice would be most appreciated. Thank you in advance....
