21 hours ago · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

I can’t take SSRI’s.. Getting off Effexor was the worst. Now I’ll take an occasional benzo to deal with my anxiety. Can’t really say about the brain damage….lol. A normal life? What’s that?

The Mirtazapine worked very quickly for me. It’s affinity for histamine receptors causes sedation. And it helped me tremendously getting to sleep. Effexor works on norepinephrine, which can cause a feeling of “jumpiness.” That’s why I only start ONE MED AT A TIME. Give the Mirtazapine more time. I did poorly on Effexor. Good luck.
