I've been on Venlafaxine for about 4 years. At first it was 150s - one 75 pill in the morning and one 75 in the afternoon. Since then the dose has been gradually increased to 300. The chemist I use couldn't get 150s so I had to take two 75s in the morning and two 75s in the afternoon. They only recently were able to get in 150s so I could take one in the morning and one in the evening but they were Extended Release and gave me some mild side effects.
So My doctor is awful for putting pills on repeat prescription and last week the chemist got mine mixed up - so no pills. Thankfully I had a few of the 75s put aside for emergenices.
I had to half my dose from 300 to 150 to make them last. The side effects haven't been bad and I've actually been feeling better on the lower dose.
If I can't get the chemist to be useful tomorrow I will have none left, and I know complete withdrawal is a nightmare. I get horrible side effects:
Just sometimes not knowing what's going on around me
Can the chemist 'loan' me medication until the repreat prescription is sorted out? I can barely function without the meds and it's so frustrating!!
