Jul 11, 2018 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

@lindaeb13 thank you. I've been only on Trintellix now for a few weeks. I still have my ups and downs though. I started on 5mg Trintellix and now am at 10mg Trintellix daily. The transition was horrible to say the least, but I've had a lot going on with my life. I broke up with an emotionally abusive boyfriend, lost my job and things are crashing down around me it seems, but I've been able to keep it together. Not sure if I could without any medication. Good luck with your transition. I had that flat feeling while on Celexa. I still get headaches, but not sure what they're from. I would never recommend Effexor to anyone just due to the effects of going off of them. Have a great day!

Thank you. He already smokes weed too, LOL, I told him I doubt CBD oil would help him quit smoking those nasty cigs. Maybe it will help with his anxiety though

Has anyone tried CBD oil to quit smoking cigs? My boyfriend is trying to quit and thinks this would help

I was switched from Effexor to Trintellix. I wish I never took Effexor, the side effects of coming off of them are horrible. I feel "brain zaps", feel like I could "snap" and it feels like things are lagging if that makes sense. I have been crying, feeling mentally off. I wish doctors would tell their patients about the withdrawals from this drug. It's awful and I am wondering how long I have to deal with this. It's making me more depressed. My hopes is that Trintellix will help my depression, I already know that it does not have the horrible withdrawal effects if I ever have to go off of it. (I was on Effexor 75mg daily) Thanks for letting me share my experience. I was told that fish oil, frozen and taken at night will help minimize the side effects, so I will try that.
