effexor and seizures

Posted by cookie123 on October 19, 2003, at 20:54:39

Hi, I had been on Effexor for over 3 years. If I missed a dose it was horrible. I earlier this year decided to go off it because I couldn't stand the withdrawls.. I was on the lowest dose and I still had withdrawls.. I tried to take one everyother day and it still didn't work.. I would feel so sick, shaky, dizzy just horrible. I felt like I was going to loose my mind. Well what do you know I started to have Seizurs on the Right side of my body. At first they were only in my leg. ( I just thought they were muscle spasms since I had had 3 previous back surgeries.) But then they got worse. The Effexor is the only thing I can think of that could have made this happen.. The doctors don't say anything of course, but mine had seen someone have seizures that were on this drug. I now have been diagnosed with Epilepsy. I have not been the same since I went of this drug. And now I have seizures to deal with. Please let me know if anyone has had this happen to them
