I stopped taking Effexor Xr cold turkey 10 days ago.
The withdrawals were just as everyone else has stated in other discussions, terrible! I could not eat anything until day 6. My appetite is slowly coming back.
Some of my main concerns now are how tired I am!! My lord I have never been so tired. I do not want to leave the couch. The brain zaps are still here which are not as bad as before, they are more of a vertigo experience for me now. My emotions are on high alert. One minute I have this sudden urge to punch my husband (I never would)... The next minute I'm crying my eyes out. And then there is my memory.. One if the main reasons I wanted off this drug. I feel my memory is getting worse now.
Can anyone who has gone through this same experience give me an outlook on how long I can expect to experience these above listed things ?
I was on effexor xr 150mg for 1 year.
I need my energy back. I need me back. I'm feeling hopeless.
