I was taking 37.5 mg Effexor capsules and dr upped it to 75mg about 1 1/2 years ago. I have been slowly tapering off the 75 and just using the 37.5. I had gone on Effexor years ago when some family issues arose along with losing our house in a fire in 2013. Plus the dr said it would help with menopause symptoms since I was taken off hormones after my being on them for 15 years. So had been on the 37.5 capsules for many years.
This week has been 5 days without a pill. MAN, my head feels woozy, insomnia, and hot flashes have taken over. I read taken fish oil and drink lots of water plus lay off the sugar would help. Laying off sugar is no problem as I am doing the Keto/Low Carb diet. Just started taking the fish oil yesterday.
BUT how long will this last? Normally I have no problem at all sleeping. Last night even after drinking a cup of Sleepy time tea, I was awake until 3am and then woke up at 7:45!
Plus the heat from summer in the south is not helping at all!
How long does this last? Anything else I can do? IF I could just get rid of the "woozy wonky" head feeling I could deal with hot flashes and lack of sleep. (maybe)
Thank you in advance!
