I was first prescribed effexor 150 back in February this year. It was a terrible time in my life and anxiety and depression was consuming my life and decided in a desperate plead to try. I had always been of the opinion I didn't want to be dependant on medication however in that point in my life I didn't have an option.
Safe to say it did exactly what I needed it to and I got my life back on track and better than ever. I have since decided to ween of the medication in the last 2 weeks.
I am now 12 days on no effexor as I weened from 75 down to 35. It has been and still is the HARDEST, testing and endless experience. I have had migraines, nausea, sweats, an awful taste in my mouth, so dizzy and so fatigued and not to mention crying at the drop of a hat. My withdrawals have been so horrific I am starting to feel like the light at the end of the tunnel is getting further and further away. I am trying to be positive but its so painful and draining and no one can give me a answer to when this nightmare is going to end. Ive even started to think I should have just stayed on the medication and saved myself this nightmare.
