I'm writing this out of utter desperation hoping someone on here can help me. I am going through unbearable venlafaxine withdrawels and last night I went to the hospital here in NZ and waited. I was taken home by two nurses and was told there was nothing they can do. I woke up and felt really terrible (panicky, confused, scared, disorientated), and I rang the doctors to see what I should take and they just wouldn't answer so I took 75mg of ven instead of the 37.5 I'm supposed to because I just want to feel better. Anyway my partner lost it at me and shouted I should be in a respite facility going through this and calling me crazy and scaring my two kids which made my withdrawel symptoms even worse and I wanted to help my daughter who was upset and I just couldn't. Now I have taken quietiapene to sleep as its too mentally painful to be awake especially when I'm frightened of my partner. An occupational therapist rung me and was so condescending and didn't know what was going on with my medication so I told him he was not qualified to be giving me instructions on what I should be doing or how I should be feeling and he argued wth me. I'm TOTALLY OVER IT ALL. I'm going to do it my way as the whole set up here in Tauranga is screwed up, they don't know anything much about venlafaxine withdrawels, they have my notes all screwed up and they are all telling me different things!! You guys on here know more about all this than the doctors and psychiatrists here!!! It's s joke. I'm from Auckland but born in the uk and ven in Auckland I'm pretty sure I would never have been treated like this there. Anyway do I continue going through hell and take 37.5mg until they are gone which is three more days. If I do will I feel better then or will I still feel bad withdrawels. I want this over with quick as I want to desperately live my life normally and be a happy mother to my kids like I used to be. Thanks everyone
