I take 150 mg once daily... I notice "withdrawal effects" if I am as little as four hours late in taking it! A few weeks ago, I got sick and couldn't keep my meds down for a day... Within
24 hours of missing the Effexor, I was crying hysterically, wishing for death, and had a NO impulse control... I cried, even slapped myself...
Finally, a close friend suggested I call my doc,
because he knew this wasn't normal behavior for me (my thinking was so clouded, I thought I was
just being a bitch)... The doc had me take my meds and within 2-3 hours, my mood had stablized
again... That was the last of SEVERAL similar experiences, so I try very hard to keep to a strict schedule with this drug. Otherwise, I could actually end up in a hospital...
My doc calls it a "boomerang" effect...
It sure being clobbered with one!
