venlafaxine cold turkey day 3

Posted , 3 users are following.

I was on ven for 6 wks and it was just making me ill.i tried to taper at 10% and withdrawal was so,so  bad. Because of this I decided to go cold turkey to shorten the crap withdrwawal.The previous 7 days I aint sat down due to anx being so bad -caused by the ven.(the neighbors over the road must hav thought i was crackers).Anyway day 1 felt really awful-anx even worse,shaking,insomnia,nausea.Now day 3-and i feel pretty good except awful aches and pains like really bad flu,brain fog,no energy at all(still in bed)insomnia.But appettite back,anx reduced by 90%,no real nausea -i did think things would be worse.Anyway its only day 3 so theres plenty time but i was on it for only 6 wks.What i have worked out is that my body cannot cope with the newer anti depresnts and i will do MORE research next time i have a chenge.I am still on mirt 15mg 7 months which i am70 % quite happy with.Will post again in a few days.

We are all very diff persons and cope with meds very differently indeed.
