Venlafaxine withdrawal

Posted , 3 users are following.

On 7th week of coming off down to 75mg from 150mg. At work I can't function ignore people, resent them, or snap at them or have burst into tears. I am to low to really acknowledge anything or anyone. What do I do start increasing again so I can function in work? I feel so bad at the thought of being off work through withdrawing from venlafaxine. It's just the stigma I could get 'self inflicted' etc.

Just asking if its because its making you feel worse or physically ill or more anxious, etc.. just trying to reply since YOU are the one who put a post on here asking for help or suggestions. Not my problem. Find out yourself. Or maybe someone else will feel sorry for you an suggest. DONE.

    Can you go back up to 150mg and remove one bead at a time but this time reducing more slowly instead.

    OR... Increase one bead at a time until the point you function better. X
