Withdraw

Posted , 6 users are following.

Can anyone confirm that headaches, lack of energy and a general sense of not feeling quite right are part of withdrawal symptoms?

I have been withdrawing slowly for the past couple of months from 75mg extended release venlafaxine but only now getting these symptoms, so tempted to start on them again but trying my hardest not to.

thanks in advance

    sorry you have been feeling like that. If you had been okay and are only now feeling these symptoms I would check with your GP to see what they advise?

    hi Jane....you feel pretty much like that and more when you start on them for weeks so I'm sure coming off them would cause the same issues but you MUST ween slowly through your doctor.
