2 days ago · Restarting Effexor after quitting Wellbutrin afterr five days... help! in Depression & Anxiety

I am on the third day without wellbutrin and only taking 75 mg of Generic Effexor. I have horrible hypertension, and my legs, arms and head sometimes twitch, scaring the crap outta me. Now, I haven’t been eating as much as I normally do due to fatigue and weakness.

Anyone have any tips on how to help? And anyone else deal with the hypertension?

Is it normal to have hypertension for days when going through this? I can feel my blood pressure just jerking my legs.

My local health unit told me to wait it out, if I could get ahold of them. I’m bringing my Effexor back up to my original dose so hopefully that will help the rapid heart rate, warm chest, tremors and the vertigo. I just want to feel normal again.

Also my chest feels very warm as do my biceps. I’m not sure what that’s from. But it’s scaring my too.

Today I’m still dizzy, it’s more of a vertigo feeling and I still get tremors in my legs/arms. When I move up from 75 to my original dose of 150, will I feel better? My anxiety’s got me thinking I have Covid even though all my symptoms only started when I originally went off Effexor and switched to Wellbutrin.

Now that I’m going back on my Effexor full dose and I have stopped my Wellbutrin, will my blurred vision go away?

I’m still having the shakes and am extremely dizzy. My arms tingle and I just get so nervous about all of these symptoms. I’m having acid reflux problems because of this. It’s scaring the hell out of me.

After my doctor refused to take my calls, I called my local health unit and they took me off Wellbutrin and ease my way back to my previous dosage of 150. I’m going to slowly taper down after that because I need to get off of this medication. With all of this coronavirus stuff going on, my anxiety thought that I got it when my chest got tight after I started my Wellbutrin.

Hopefully I can finally beat this.
