Sat, Mar 14 9:25am · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

How old are you?
I used to write words about raging emotions after getting off this drug.
Red Clover Tea from the health food store stopped these feelings.
It soothed out the nasty edges.
Get it loose or in tea bags.
It works.
They will tell you how much to use.
I myself was using a loose tablespoon of the dried leaves and flowers in 1 quart hot water.
A bit of honey helped. I would put less than a tsp in the quart.
I wish you well.

Many docs dont know it's so tough to get off of.
Or in my case, I didnt ask.

Bright Wings here,
Oh yes, I was getting off this last drug.

And I'm an RN.

I started getting off in September of 2017. I took my dosage, 150 mg, then decided that was my last medication.
I did not do any homework, or read the cautions.
Long story short, I had such a bad nightmare, and as a result, I had a full on STROKE
I found this fantastic website in january, 2018.
DO NOT DO WHAT I DID.
I have since completely recovered.
It's been a long road back.
Taper, please taper, but it's your choice, how much you want to suffer.
Its doable, just take your time.
Smiling at you, Bright Wings

Yes, I'm flying now.
Oh there ate still storms to handle at times, each of us has them to handle.
But for the most part I am the master of my ship….

Good for you.
Each of us gets to decide what we want to do and how to handle our Helper Parts.
They helped us survive. I honored each of them for that.
I have 42 journals that I wrote to figure this all out. I would write with my left hand to give the parts a way to Express themselves. This, along with a fantastic therapist who understood all of us, well it helped the ones who chose to integrate. And I realize while I do not have many parts left there are a few. The rest of them chose to go because I was handling things well and I was out of danger.
When that happened, I got to keep all their gifts. So they are still here with me assisting me as before, but just no longer separate.
I honor my parts, past and present, because they kept me alive in a very bad place with very bad people.
And you get to choose for yourself. There are no right or wrong dicissions. It's your life.
I'm so jealous, nope, too strong a word. I sure wish I would of had a service dog. Cuz the touch of an animal is so important to living well, at least for me.
I sure wish you well, I truly do.

Healing is possible.
I ended up integrating 150 personalities thru the years.
Why, cuz I never gave up.
I recently found another one, how do I know?
Cuz i hear in my brain when i see something on a table, "take that and keep it."
No, i know that's not me, but someone else emerging.
It is what it is, my plan is to attend a Shamanic training session for 3 days.
I know He will be integrated when i am finished.
How do i know that???
Cuz I am a do what ever it takes kind of girl.
Smiling at you, Bright Wings
