Aug 4, 2018 · Long term effects AFTER withdrawing from Effexor in Depression & Anxiety

Thank you for that suggestion. I haven’t used this resource in years so I wouldn’t have know who in the group would be good to reach out to here. I mentioned it to my doctor at my last physical and she was strangely silent regarding any of my comments related to chronic pain and depression. This is a new doctor and I was hopeful, due to her bio, that she was more open minded to alternative medicine and listening. However that was not my experience. I have moved A LOT in my adult life and so my medical care has been very inconsistent and poor. The only constant has been my therapist for the last 12 years. While I have done well since weaning off meds (and getting a divorce—one of the exacerbating factors for depression was the marriage), this pain is threatening to pull me down into depression again. Thank you for the recommendation and for reaching out to these other folks. I hope they might have some wisdom to share.

Aug 4, 2018 · Long term effects AFTER withdrawing from Effexor in Depression & Anxiety

I am wondering if anyone has had any experience like this. I weaned off Effexor three years ago. After doing so I have gradually developed what is now becoming debilitating chronic pain. I am wondering if there is any way that being on Effexor for 15 years could have caused me to develop this pain now that I am not on it anymore. Thanks for your thoughts. I can’t seem to find any direct related research on this.

Jul 31, 2011 · Hypothyroidism in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Sounds VERY familiar! I am so tired all the time. I have no energy to exercise. I was diagnosed with hypothyroid 10 years ago and still I have the same problems as I did then. I’m still being treated for depression after 10 years as well. I don’t ever seem to get better. Sometimes I feel very hopeless. I went to an endocrinologist a few years ago thinking perhaps I would learn something new there about my condition, but it was more of the same. She kept telling me I needed to exercise. Duh. But, I’m tired all the time. It’s a vicious cycle. I don’t know what to do either. I’ve been reading about hyperparathyroid today. I don’t know if I was ever tested for that or not. Maybe that will be something else to try. I feel your pain.

Did they rule out an inner or middle ear infection?
