So about a month ago to 3 weeks ago I quit taking my effexor due to me being dumb and thinking that I could control my anxiety. I was on it for about 2 years as i'm only 19. Friday night I had a panic attack and decided to take my effexor regularly again and I got a dry mouth and still have it. I went to the Dr because the dry mouth scared me and I thought it was a disease or something, now last night after the Dr I wanted to sleep and I kept falling in and out of sleep like every couple of minutes and had these stupid strange thoughts racing through my mind that made no sense whatsoever, I was shaking bad and felt warm in my face and was freaking out. This went on for about 3-4 hours, I finally fell asleep and woke up at around 8 with only 4 hours of sleep. I went to the Dr again because I'm scared that i'm going insane and he said it's purely the anxiety, I went back home and took an hour nap and felt the same exact things although not as bad, now throughout the day i've been thinking of stupid things like when I was driving I thought "what if i'm driving on the wrong side of the road" and then at home "what if this is all fake" and it's scaring me and i'm scared to go to sleep tonight. My mom is pleading with me and telling me i'm not going insane and that it's due to the anxiety and most likely getting off the effexor and coming back on it as my doctor and friends also said. However I am still extremely scared, does anybody else have these issues when they went off their meds and went back on them?
