      i am now stuck

      when get back to ven 3 years ago i start it again on 75mg

      and 3 years was doing good there was up and down but was manageable

      now week ago i start experiencing some effects similar to side effects

      feel some internal back head tremors and specially around my ears zone. and expand do the middle of mack back head

      and my anxiety start from there then start to feel lil dizzy similar to withdrawals so i think thants signs where my medication stop working

      because it left me now to feel like am not on any medication where start feel panics again and bad depression

      so what do you recommend add new medication or try increase my dose

      does that signs that the drug not working anymore?

      its really weird thou

      how about you dear how do you feel now on the new dose

      i think you need to be patient i swear for me when start the medication all over again second episode it tooks around 7 months to sitle and my anxiety and dippression fades yes i ben so so patient

      i have real experience for long long patience with this drug i never give up fast so that i give it long long time to wait until give its goods

      i want to give a hint

      stupidly before i experience this

      i was on herbal mixture that my father told me it can help losing weight

      it was boiling ginger and turmeric and diluted with water and drink at early morning with swallowing raw sectioned garlic AND I TOOK THAT FOR OVER A MONTH

      and then i started to experience Effexor withdrawal and pooping up

      i ben reading for hours to see if that may cuase the poop up of the antidepressant and many studies showed that these mixures can affext the metabolism of the drug and may cause increasing in anxiety and depression

      OW MY GOD!
