< Hi KimDi how are you doing today? This board has definitely given me a lot of great info. Also gives you the feeling that other people know what you are going through. I have been on so many meds during the years and effexor did seem to be the best one for anxiety and depression. I have tapered off because no longer works for me. How long have you been on effexor? Worked for me for 7 years. Also came off because I want to have a baby in the near future. The 50 of zoloft is working for me somewhat.
> I am in the middle of effexor withdrawals which are not fun - have you heard of anything else that helps with withdrawal? I take 1 benadryl a day which seems to get rid of flu like feeling and nausea -

Everyone (lots of folks anyways) says to ask for a small prescription of Prozac to help you thru the withdrawals. I've only been on Effexor since May 2003, I believe. I was here posting on Day 1. It's been a lifesaver for me but I do understand that it doesn't work for everyone. I try to tame my enthusiam down a bit. Are you from England or Australia?

My day is fine. No overwhelming emotions and my thinking is clear. What more could a person ask for? :) Keep us posted on what helps with your withdrawal. My day will come... Oh, and how exciting it must be to be planning for a baby! I envy you that. My husband has 2 from a previous marriage and doesn't want anymore.
