I had another account on this site but for some reason it got deactivated and I could no longer access it. I have been on venlafaxine 75mg for nearly 2 months now and to tell you the truth I wish I never went near the stuff. I kept hearing from my doctors and other people to keep persevering with it and that's what I did. But I am still experencing bad anxiety and depression and I think some of the anxiety and depression is coming from the side effects of the venlafaxine. The side effects I think I am experencing from the venlafaxine after being on it nearly 2 months are confusion, sexual side effects, tiredness, sore teeth, struggling to pee and just all round feeling strange and not my self. I am still having a panic attack going out in public and that is after being on venlafaxine 75mg for nearly 2 months. Surely that can not be right? I just feel I have gave the venlafaxine a long enough shot now? and can not see myself getting much better on it? I sometimes have good days but most days are filled with bad confusion anxiety and depression. I sometimes had good days when I was not even on anti depressants. I am so desperate to get off this venlafaxine 75mg that I feel like just going cold turkey and no longer taking it? Do you think that would be that much a problem after only being on it for nearly 2 months? I was thinking about just not taking it and then if I feel bad I will take a 37.5mg capsule and then just slowly try to wean off from there? I also hear omega 3 fish oil helps with the withdrawal? But come on seriously it seems quite dangerous if I am going to be expernicng serious withdrawal and I have only been taking the stuff for just under 2 months?
Any help and advice would be much appreciated.
