I feel for you, I really do. "Satans Pill"
Thats exactly how I felt. Though for some it really does work. I say now if the pills left had feelings I'd stab them just to hear them scream.
I've been on MANY drugs and never felt anything like I did on e ffexor, and I was pushed to keep increasing my dose, even though I was calling my PDoc almost every day Pleading for something else.
I think the advice to find another dr is really good, though it may feel impossible right now.
I took prozac to ease the withdrawl from Effexor and it worked miracles for that.
I wish I could offer you more tangible advice, but mostly wanted to say you are not alone in this. You will survive it. And I'll be thinking of you. The memory is still fresh in my mind.
