ive been off venlafaxine for 6 months now. I went cold turkey from 225mg a day- was on it for 6 years.
apart from the awful withdrawal, I've been ok. Lots of ups and downs but have tried to stay positive and hope that it's gong to take a while to stabilise.
i wanted to come off the meds because I felt stable, and wanted to stop chemical intervention. I wanted to be me again.
but the last couple of weeks I can have started to feel myself going down hill again. I feel so low. I just want to cry all the time, but have forced myself to stop giving in. I think I can fight this. I want to fight this.
I honestly don't want to go back on meds ,but I'm kind of stuck in limbo.
the only thing that has kept me going is sleeping tablets. They knock me out for 7/8 hours, so,at least I'm sleeping. It I've found the last couple of days, that I've taken 2/3 in a row, to knock me out straight.
Thats not good is it?
what can I do?
i need help.
