My MaineCoons cat Kylie ate a 75 mg L 4 days ago and it has been such a scary time. Lucky she is nearly 8 kg and that saved her life. She is slowly coming back to herself but is still not right. Her pupils were highly dilated and she was just pyschotic not moving and looking at the ceiling. She did not eat or sleep for 2 days and her heart was pounding I have never been so scared. When you google cats and poisoning Venlafaxine comes up as 3 rd on the list. For some reason they are attracted to it. When I think it could have been a 225 mg which would have killed her straight away. It just shows you how poisonous this thing is.
I have been on AD for 20 years but 4 years ago I went through a huge life changing traumatic event and was put on the venlafaxine 225 mg I would love to be able to not take anything but not sure if I am up to it. I started to come down each month by 37.5 mg and last week hit 75mg and it has been awful so I think i will stay on this for 3 months before going on to 35 mg and will probably go on to Sertraline. Any advise on best way to do this much appreciated, when should I start the Sertraline and which dose.
I am am crying writing this at the realisation that I could have lost my beautiful cat. I have 3 the other 2 much smaller and if it had of been one of them they would not be here to day.
