I have been taking 5 mg of oxazepam, a benzo, for maybe 15-20 years, at night. It was originaly prescribed for restless leg syndrome. I was also recently taking Effexor for about six months, but tapered off it VERY slowly and took my last dose in May. After a couple of months of feeling good, I hit a wall -- was so depressed for a couple of months that I hardly left the house. I am now taking Luvox, another SSRI, and I was doing pretty well until recently, when I've started having what feel like withdrawal symptoms -- severe anxiety, crying bouts, general misery. Does anyone have any ideas? Could it still be the Venlafaxine working its way out of my system? Or something to do with the Benzos?
