I've been on 150mg of venlafaxine for about a year and I decided I was in a place where I could stop taking it. So my doctor (whom was super supportive all along and sweet as could be) lowered my disease from 150 mg xr to 75 mg xr for 3 months and then to 37.5 mg xr for 1 months, then she told me to just stop taking it so I did and then I told her I felt like I got hit by a bus...and she told me I as making it all up and it was all in my head? I didn't realize vomiting and brain zaps was a symptom of anxiety. Anyway she ended up giving me 25 mg of no xr and I took that for a week then cut those in half for a week and then I stopped last Tuesday. I am on day 6 of withdrawals and feel like absolute death. Vomiting, dizzy, head aches and I'm sweating profusely. I weaned off and I don't understand why I'm feeling like this! I'm taking the omega 3s and Advil and nothing's helping!
Should I just stop and take the stupid pill again?
