In my last post (https://patient.info/forums/discuss/getting-off-2mg-valium-daily-per-night-need-help-passion-flower-679722?page=1) I was talking about my experienced with Valium and sertraline (Zoloft) . I was taking Valium 3/4 of 0.2 mg 1 time per night and also Zoloft 25 mg 1 time per night. My main probem is insomnia and some anxiety. In my last post I said that the first 3 days were bad, the 4 and 5th days were marvelous and the rest 4 days were pretty bad too.
Ok so now my update: I went yesterday to my doctor and she change Zoloft to a new drug called Venlafaxine, which came in a capsule of 150 mg but she told meto take half 1 per day at dinner time. So I did as per her prescription. Oh, and keep taking 3/4 of 0.2 mg too when go to bed.
As for the first night... HORRIBLE HORRIBLE night guys. I had about 2-3 hours sleep (and with some kind of weird dreams), sweeting like a pig and when I woke up after those 2-3 hours I couldn't sleep anymore until this morning. I have now a big headache, super tired, feel like I have been hit by a truck. Today is Friday and I can't see my doc until Monday so I guess I have to try this method for the next 3 nights.. GOD BLESS! I had read and watch people's experience with Venlafaxine and some said is good and some said is bad.... I still don't know if the symptons are from reducing valium or because the change of medication. I guess my brain is so mess up at the moment.
Do you guys have any experience with Venlafaxine? does it help?
