@dhramsey Welcome to the forum. So sorry for your persistent headaches. Have you looked into NAD therapy? If you have't google it. I would suggest a call to the Springfield Wellness Center to see if they think they can help you…
Tue, Mar 26 5:30pm · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety
@mommapsych There is something called 5HTP. You can get it over the counter or on the internet. Very helpful. Also, Omegbrite and Complex B vitamins were recommended to me before I ever started the process. When she has the headaches, check her blood pressure. It caused mine to go extremely high. I was on it for about 10 years. After 8 months, my pressure was rising so high, my doctor said to rip the bandaid off and I was down to a sliver anyway, so i did it. It is a horrible drug. If you have access to it, look into NAD therapy…. they have a formula that goes under the tongue. I've been off for about 6 weeks and have the worst brain fog ever still. The brain zaps were intense for me about 2 weeks, now less and less and I get a little light headed, especially in the evening. The 5HTP really helps… Good luck

You have a right to be angry, so don't apologize. You're stating facts in an appropriate manner, which is what my counselor would say. I am a medical professional, although not practicing and I'm so angry right now with my own issues and fighting for my health/lack of. I hope you find relief and a quality of life that you've not had before. Read about NAD therapy and it's benefits. I don't know if you're a candidate, but it can open up channels and pathways that have gone awry, which I am certain you have with this length of time and pain. Also, look into infrared sauna. It has many wonderful pain and healing benefits. Diet and gut microbiome health are also really important factors. There is much on the internet about it. About 70% of our immune system is in our gut…. Best wishes to you!
