NO MORE EFFEXOR - Two Week Update

In reply to NO MORE EFFEXOR - WANT TO SAY THANKS AND SHARE EXP, posted by NCFelines on April 10, 2003, at 11:11:24

I wanted to post an update, and say thank you once again for you wonderful, helpful people who help me keep my sanity! OK, first of all, the blood pressure has gone back to normal. Yay! Some other positive things are that I feel very much more alive and "interested" in everything, instead of just "calm." The calmness was so good when I was taking Effexor. But now, I feel that I am very much more actively involved in life, if that makes sense. It is not a bed of roses, because I had forgotten how nervous I am naturally. I have also had two panic attacks, which left me feeling very defeated. HOWEVER, I have started a program of evening exercise that seems to help, as my panic attacks are usually at night. Also, when all else fails, I break down and take a .05 mg Clonopin. I would rather not take anything, and am hoping that after a few weeks into a good exercise program I won't have to. Also, I am cutting out ALL caffeine. DUH! Why did that not occur to me? My system just cannot tolerate anything that makes me more nervous. Sigh. I loved Starbucks so... Anyway, I am also reading about any and all "natural" anxiety therapy. So, there is a snapshot of where I am not. I would have to say that I feel I made the right decision to discontinue the Effexor, and do feel a lot stronger now. THANK YOU SO MUCH, AGAIN. I am set up to get e-mails notifications of new posts. So, if you do, I will read it right away. : )
