This site has been a god send for me. I stopped taking Effeor 75mg. after 6 months, 4 days ago. My symptoms have been electrical zapping in my whole body, tiredness, sinus, MOODY, trouble sleeping, very stange dreams, night sweating etc. My husband told me that I've been talking lots in my sleep. I am thankful I am not on that high of a dose and I'm not sure if the doseage relates to withdrawl severity, but I am going to continue to try to abstain. I have read previous posts about Kava-kava, which I plan to buy tonight, as well as Benadryl, TheraFlu and Nyquil. I would much rather try these first than go back to this drug. I began my medication as a referal from my MD for mild depression. I have subsequently found out that I am peri-menopausal, hence I am sure the reason for my mid life depression. Now that I know the root couse for my anxiety I can deal with it without this drug. For some I am sure it has been wonderful. For me it has been a nightmare for the last four days. I have also read posts about seratonin syndrome. Does anyone have experience with seratonin suplementation, will this help or not?
Thanks in advance!
