28 days Effexor-free

Tomorrow I will be 28 days effexor-free, and I STILL have shocks, severe headaches, and dyslexia-like symptoms.
I still have cravings for sweets and carbs. (didn't before taking effexor), and have not lost any of the weight I gained while taking it.

I still have trouble thinking, as in planning things to do (sounds crazy, but I have to concentrate so hard to come up with each step involved in completing any task.)

I was referred to a psychiatrist, who prescribed Klonopin for the shocks. It reduces the intensity some, so that my body does not 'jump' when it hits, but I still have maybe 40 or more a day.

I am extremely frustrated, and hope that eventually all these symptoms will FINALLY go away.

Any comments or advice?
