Re: Efexor XR - Long Term Withdrawal - Anyone Else?

I missed one day of taking effexor in one year. I was relatively okay during the day. That night I had the most hellish, tortured dreams. In some dream/awake state, it occured to me that I may have missed my meds, so up I was at midnight taking it (at least 20 hours late). It helped me to sleep more peacefully for the rest of the night.

As for feeling, well I am feeling again. I am tearful but as I observe myself, I am being tearful in response to things that I should be tearful about (the anniversary of my Mom's death, the happiness I feel about my neice graduating high school, my disconnect from the thing I love most - which is writing, and sadness over generally growing older and not living the life I would like to living in some important ways. I am glad to be feeling again even though I am not as easy for others to be around. Should I be medicating myself so that others can tolerate me being responsive to life with a mild degree of passion? Frankly I don't think so. I don't want to be depressed though. That is a real bummer. So...I am sure that the depression will return and will deal with it then in whatever way seems the most sensible and least harmful at the time. Effexor was my first anti-depressant.

Thanks, Bunkie
