I would like just to share my experience with effexor, because this drug changed my life in very strange way. I have been on antidepresant madications for three years. I had suffered from suicidal depresion for a long time. All this medications gave me some enargy to live trough this tough times. I started effexor begining of april this year. First week was horrible. I could not think I could not concentrate I could not live. After one week effexor started to work and feel a bit relived. But all this starting problems gave me thinking that with this drug is something wrong. I was investigating a little bit and found out that I better quit. I quit cold turky. Experieced zaps and all what is going together with this medicine. I was so pissed off of not sleping for two months that this was I guess the best solution. But also after quiting almost 1 month ago I could not sleep. I got drunk one nite but next day just could not stop drinking. I was seeing everything black, became suicidal but was able to put myself together in a few days. After that I said no more medicine for me. Doing sports every day, going to nature eventhou I dont fell quit alright. And hoping that this all will pass ... But there is still a problem which I dont understand and maybe anyone of you can help me with this one. Have mood balacing from almost euphoric to totaly depressed and can change in a few hours. I one moment I have so much life energy that I am sure that I can handle it at the other time I am thinking of suicide as a best solution. But one think that realy bothers me is that I fell relay agressive inside of me. I dont show it on the outside but there is like a voice in my head that is telling me that I should hurt someone and only the people I love and like. I is terrible experience and relaly wish that this would go away because I am becoming afraid of myself. I have not experienced this before and it could be long term side effect after quiting effexor.
