So I've been on venlafaxine for about 4 and half years 150mg and about 3 weeks ago it seemed to just poop out on me & stopped working. I was put on it due to anxiety but now it's come back twice as bad doc said she wouldn't up the dose as it probably wouldn't help as my body has become immune so got to start the withdrawal. For the past week I have been taking 112.5mg and i honestly feel awful. Been referred to mental health team but who knows how long that will take. Seeing gp tomorrow and he's thinking of adding 5mg of escitalopram to help through withdrawing from the ven and got a few diazepam to try help with the constant anxiety. I have lost nearly a stone as i haven't been able to eat, suffering insomnia, diarrhoea, body aches, dry mouth, and this horrid feeling like I'm detached from myself. Is this normal? Honestly feels like it's never going to end x
