Jul 30, 2018 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

Been reading a lot I post back in the first part of June I believe I loose track of time so easily these days but was taking effexor about a year and a half and it seemed to stop working if it really did at all so my pcp sent to mental health where they uped my dose from 75 up it 37.5 week then to 150 with no real change in how I was feeling I have a lot of back pain stomach pain and had a heart attack at age 35 so I also take a lot of meds of the heart and stomach and pain meds all that alone is depressing only being 47 now my body is more of a 60 + year old because of the way my heart beats but needless to say I only look late 30s so I'm told but anyway we discussed switching to Cymbalta b3cause it is known to help pain so he started me on the weeping process which his order was 75 3days 37.5 3 days and start Cymbalta so by day 2 of no effexor I was a hot mess all around about ready to commit my self because of dizziness pressure in my head sweats shakes bad dreams lack of total concentration just felt totally disoriented so I call mental heath Dr he stopped the Cymbalta and put me on 10 MG Lexapro and 25mg Vistaril which I only took a few days of the Vistaril because it didn't help the panic attacks I was having I see this Dr tomorrow almost 2 months later I do feel better from the withdraws but still get the fuzzy head feeling from time to time and just no enegery or get up and go at all I'm hoping this comes back I want my life back so him and I are going to have a long discussion on what to do next I want off the Lexapro too but am terrified of what may come of that too no more meds for me until I get a genetic testing first wish me luck and from what I have learned about this drug is that you must I mean must take it slow and easy because that was one of the worst feelings I've ever had I would rather be depressed then withdraw from the evil drug

My Dr only gave me 6 days to ween off effexor er and then start 40 MG of Cymbalta because I have a lot of pain and this antidepressant is know to help pain by day 2 of no effexor I was so very sick physically and mentally my head was spinning nausea pressure on my ears sedative to certain sounds just not a good feeling at all so I called him he took me off Cymbalta and put me on 10 MG Lexapro that was June 8th I have had so many things and feelings since this getting less but still a struggle of course everyone is different but as many have said take as much time to ween as your body and mind feel fit in my personal opinion my anxiety is worse then it's ever been good luck thinking of you all

They are toxic in my opinion too I had a heart attack in 2007 at age 35 they put me on Prozac after that to help with anxiety and stress after 5 years Taking that I stopped cold turkey because life changed and stress was less I didn't feel the need to continue but since then my anxiety and depression have become a daily struggle so I found they would try different meds over the years some work to a point but after a while didn't help so a year ago I started effexor and felt worse and worse as they increased doses so Dr weaned me off 150 MG to 75mg for 3 days and then 37.5 for 3 days then start Cymbalta 30 MG 2 days on that and I was a wreck so switched me to Lexapro 10mg and 25 MG Vistaril for anxiety which that's as needed 3 times a day I don't take it much at bedtime to help sleep and that didn't help a bit so I'm only on 1antidepressant the Lexapro 10 MG the past 2 weeks no effexor still having some weird fuzzy feeling in my head can't sleep feel like I'm starving all the time it seems less as the days pass but who knows how long this will last agitated easily cry for no reason but I will never allow them to switch me again hope to stop Lexapro soon too I do smoke thc which seems to help a lot might try the cbd oil but have not yet because I'm scared to try other things because of horrible side affects so I do understand now and hope everyone having these issues knows we can and will get threw this

I haven't learned how to post on my own yet so I just respond to post hope that's OK my frist post was on the 7th or 8th but besides that why would you choose Lexapro? That's what my Dr prescribed me when he gave Cymbalta and weaned me off effexor and by day 2 of no effexor I was a horrible mess 3 days at 75 and 3 days at 37.5 then none went to 30 MG Cymbalta only on that 2 days then switched to 10 MG Lexapro I still am having many different withdraws seems a bit less on some and more on other memory is horrible but seems some better I find my self staring off in blank space sometimes not sure how long but catch myself doing it a lot and I could sleep 15 hours +and now am having a very hard time getting 6 hours without waking several times with strange dreams that keep me trying to put the pieces of it together strange feeling I know one thing for sure I'm not dead from the withdraws so it won't kill ya even at times I feel I'd be better off I just don't know what to do kids ant even explain how I get the ups and downs but never taking another antidepressants besides 10 MG Lexapro and I want off that asap I'm tired of being a per say pin cousin on theses drugs I smoke thc 4 to 8 times a day and that really has been helping with the anxiety part hope everyone keeps posting it helps me to see I'm not alone and try somethings that help others
