I have finally weened off my Effexor ( venlafaxine) after 6 weeks but the depression came back around the 4 week mark. Started Prozac 2. 1/2 weeks ago and not helping yet. Called my GP to tell him I'm struggling and his answer ( via some medical asst) was " well just stop the Prozac and go back on the Effexor". Just like that..... after 6 weeks of physical nausea, dizziness and fatigue... just put it back in your system. Geez... I'm at a loss. I got off of it because a PROFUSE sweating to the point of social embarrassment and horrible dry mouth. I called back and asked for an appointment because I feel this response was WAY too casual for such an important medical decision. Am I overreacting? Is there no other solution. Is there no other drug out there without all the side effects and withdrawal symptoms?????
