In Nov 2014 I was prescribed 75mg ven which was increased to 150mg a few months later, I feel this hasn't helped and have no faith in this drug and after discussion with my doctor I'm trying to come off totally. Previous to this I was prescribed cipramil in 2002 and remained on this until ven appeared.
For or the past two weeks I have alternated each day between 150 and 75 and a couple of days ago tried a day without anything, all was fine during the day until the middle of the night when I wake with horrendous head/brain zaps and felt sick, this continued until mid morning, felt awful so took 75mg and within a few hours started to feel slightly better. I have taken 75mg since then but still having head zaps every few mins and don't feel particularly well. As I take slow release capsules not sure how to reduce from 75 to maybe 37.5.
Any advice would be appreciated, should I just stop completely if do how long will the brain zaps/nausea last? I'm an active retired lady but could just take to my bed when feeling really bad if I knew there was an end in sight.
