I have been tapering of venalfaxine for the last 4 weeks and only cut down a fraction of my dose I was ok for a while but now I'm getting the most horrendous simptoms. I'm tired dizzy feel sick can't eat feel faint when I stand up just feel like I want to die to be honest. The depression and anxiety is worse than ever, I knew all this was going to happen as it's just withdrawal simptoms and it doesn't mean I need them it's just means that I have come dependant on them but knowing all this doesn't make it anymore easy. What annoys me is that the doctors dish out this crap but don't tell you how hard it is to come off them. All I seem to read lately is the terrable story's about how hard it is to get off this drug. I regret the day I went on it also it never gave me any relief all I got from it was the awful side effects. I wish this drug could be banned then that would save anyone else having to go through this hell. I'm finding it so hard as I have to work and can't have time off as I can't get benifits due to the fact I was on benifits last year and was made to go for a medical at one if those athos centres run by the DWP and told I was fit for work so the benifits were stopped. Also I am self employed so don't get statutory sick pay so I have no choice but to work when feeling like a zombie. Anyway I suppose I just have to stick with it and hope to God that I will feel better soon and get completely off this nightmare drug as there is no way I'm turning back now I just want this crap out of my system. I have tryed all sorts of ADs over the last 30 years and nothing has helped at all, in fact most of them have made me worse so I'm looking at more healthy ways to deal with this like exercise healthy eating acupuncture Rieki and Herbal remedys ect at least these don't have side effects and withdrawal simptoms
