Nov 5, 2019 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

I have been on Effexor for some months and so far it is helping; however, if you feel it is no longer effective then your primary care physician or neurologist should taper you off and try another medication.

Nov 4, 2019 · Living with epilepsy - Introduce yourself & meet others in Epilepsy & Seizures

I am currently trying to write down what seems to trigger the seizures; however, I tend to lose or misplace my notebook, lol. However, I read to at least educate myself on what not to do and/or things to limit. I appreciate all the help I can get because half the time, it is a crap shoot as to what triggers them and the other half it’s play the game-“lets make a deal.” My team of docs do their best, I think, to keep me from being in the prone position or in a hospital bed. I do, sincerely want to thank each person who replies to my “ramblings.”

I understand what you are saying. I have had quite a few LOC due to migraines and now I have a pinched nerve in my neck that I have to be careful with. However, I would definitely ask your neurologist and/or primary care physician regarding a diet that may help as well as meds.

My neurologist took the sheet of paper with my questions and copied it into my medical records. My memory isn’t as good as it used to be but I am sick of others judging me and trying to tell me what to do. My life is a never- ending nightmare on some days but it doesn’t mean I am a child or be talked to like one. I have been independent since 18 so please stop treating me like I am an invalid.

I appreciate your reply and I am trying to get my team of docs on the same page. As a retired soldier, I suffered quite a bit of head trauma so my migraines are horrible and the blackouts/seizures are back with a vengeance. I take a boat load of meds; however, my endocrinologist is working on removing several and adding one.
