> Please help.I've had so many problems since I've stopped taking effexor.I took my last pill of 37.5 five days ago and I've had such a hard week. My symptoms are dizziness, irritability and kind of feeling like I'm not here. Does anyone understand? I'm praying that it is the withdrawal effects and not the fact that I really "need" the medicine. I have been so afraid that now I'm really going crazy. It's so scary.I don't know what to do.I would have never had taken this drug if I had known about how it would make me feel when I got off of it.
It sounds like you may have quit too suddenly. Did
you taper off it gradually? Can you ask your doc
for more? Ask him if he has any samples of it. At
least talk to your doc about it.
