May I discussed with my doctor whether I should reduce venlafaxine. Went from 225 to 150. Had headaches a few days but OK. June down to 75. This is brilliant. July 37.5. Wow no withdrawal. Even binge eating getting under control!
August down to 37.5 every other day. Now I don't feel so good. OK doctor puts me back on 37.5. No good. I don't feel I am coping. September I go up to 75. October up to 150. Two weeks ago I have a major episode of suicidal thoughts. Simple remark puts me into "must die" mode.
Go to hospital, get loads of help and here I am back on 225mg.
Have I failed? I have withdrawn from everyone except my 3 beloved nieces. All under 11. My only reason to live. Have great hubby but I know he cannot help so I don't burden him. I see he feels for me but wisely let's me handle things my own way.
Anybody had similar experiences?
