>Hi, Alara (and Sly),
I, too, felt angry and had difficulty controlling my temper for a few weeks to a couple of months after coming off Effexor. I'm about three months out now and am just now getting better and feeling "normal" without the anger! Don't think I will ever want this medication in my body again, although I fight every day NOT to take it because Effexor helped my chronic pain SOOOO much.
I'm currently on 75 mg/day, and have been for about 5 months now, things are great except I find myself extremely irritable. I'm so anxious and angry, I have day dreams about yelling at people, I'm giving my boss at work major attitude and I want to rip off everyone's head for any minor annoyance. Anyone else have this problem?
> Maybe it's just me, I am stressed out, but I'm sleeping well. I just feel so... ANGRY and I don't know why!?
> Any suggestions?
