> > > A born again christian??? Your lack of charity and decency amazes me. Moreso your slamming of your doctor is both uncalled for as well as likely inappropriate.Do you know that he had a payment due on his car? Is it possible that he is not a money hungry greedy person? Is it just possible that he would not feed you every variey of medication under FDA rubric? You may diagree with his thinking and diagnosis but where is all of your venom coming from?? By the way, you slam his/her education, and you cannot fathom how it might be interesting. Is it possible that he knows more about mental illness than someone who simplistically states that a "wracked immune system " is the root of all. By the way, does that include schizophrenia, huntington's disease and PTSD? Just as an aside, what religion was your psychiatrist????

> > > I do not want to sound like a crabby complainer, and I am sure that Richard has some valid points, but i am disappointed in the responses to his original posting. how come no one called him on his arrogantly inane and vicious posting. I assume that many of us who hang our hats on this message board believe that there is such a thing as mental illness, that doctors do care, and that they are not just making porsche payments. Thank you.

> > Thanks for responding Levi, I guess I too was surprised at the number of respones containing little or no disagreeing opinions about my 'rantings'. First of all, the doctors I was refering to was a generalization. Maybe that was a mistake. However, unless you've walked in my shoes and experienced what I've experienced amongst 'caring professionals' you would know beyond a shadow of a doubt that physicians are extremely ignorant about nutrition. Doesn't that raise a 'plethora' of giant, brilliantly-colored red flags ? Come on. If the FDA can't patent it,(ie. herbs, etc...) Why prescribe it ?

> > When I originally posted my Effexor posting, I was upset about an incident involving my HMO, which is a very fine organization but blanketed in red tape which caused some very uncomfortable decisions to be made by my family and I. I still had a right to rant, though , and I may do it again. Maybe you can respond again in a colorful fashion. That's what this is all about, isn't it.

> I am curious. You said that July 9 was your last time to take Effexor. As a Christian I am constantly thinking that I don't need Effexor either. However, I have found that I am able to function much better with it. Every time I try to not take it I get into trouble. How are you doing without it?

I gradually reduced the dosage and finally stopped at 75 mg. or so. The first 2 weeks were filled with the typical mind shocks, but, starting with the day I completely stopped, those shocks got milder and milder. I haven't experienced any for a couple of days now, but once in a great while I'll experience a little mild shock. I feel great and I'm still acting "up". I thought for sure I would be down and exhausted tired, craving the drug. This is one of the many lies. God bless you and your journey to freedom.
