Effexor, Remeron and wellbutrin

Posted by Bridge on October 12, 2003, at 21:52:06

Hello, I'm a new member and signed up to see if someone can help me understand my meds.

I am off from Effexor since a week ago because of a severe night sweat side effects. IT was to a point where I cudnot sleep longer than 2.5 hrs exactly and literelly I was soaking wet. I was exausted and finally afer been on it for a 6mo. Ihad to stop. Before then I had prozac & wellbutrin combo then on to lexapro & well combo---didn't do much. Effexor was better but never have I become "content"...
Withdrawal effect of effexor was like a hell though. Emotionally unstable like 2 years ago when I had a "crisis", and like they say flu like symptoms w/o fever. My PDoc told me from 300mg /day to 150mg over 2days,then to 75mg following day and he forgot(?) to tell me what to do after so I took a liberty of stopping it in 3days. When I saw him thru this, his words were:"You were off too soon! You can't do that." I wish he cud be little more humaine and tell me what cud happen when stopping these drugs instead of finding it out as a physical experience and a lot of internet serch.
I still have strange static-like buzz in back of my head that comes and goes, and dizziness or ooziness. Will it help if I retake 150mg wellbutrin to activate my mind -although it didn't do much before at 300mg/day? By the way my new meds are, remeron 45mg/day and now lamictal 75mg/day going on to 100mg/day by next week. I'm still not so clear as to how these drugs are supposed to help controll my depression, and I wonder any of them ,again, is as hard as Effexor to get off??
thanks in advance for your advise!
