I was prescribed Venlafaxine on Friday - 37.5mg twice daily - the first night was wonderful, slept like a log after 4 nights with no sleep at all. Awoke the next morning feeling good, took my morning tablet and it all went downhill from there really. Yesterday I felt out of it all day, had to get my son to drive me to the supermarket as I didn't feel safe driving. Then last night I woke up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat, panicky, racing heart, trembling etc. I almost asked my son to take me to A&E I felt that bad. This morning I was still just as bad, felt almost psychotic, no appetite or thirst, sweaty, shaking from head to toe, extremely nervous and agitated but zoned out at the same time. I didn't take my morning tablet and I phoned the doctor, just waiting for a call back now, but I've been on the sofa all day drifting in and out of fitful sleep, keep getting brain zaps and body jerks. I can't take this, and I've been told these side effects can last weeks! Any help or advice please?
