yeah - i am still withdrawing, but i can feel myself getting better every day! (today was day 30 for me). i felt like i somehow 'broke through' this past weekend, around day 25.

since you can't really smoke pot during the day, i recommend you make some brownies or cookies or something so you can eat it. i'm starting a new job, and i'm taking 'snacks' with me to work! and it's not even fulltime! :)

about the feeling like a heroin addict - yes, i know it well. the withdrawals also made me walk funny, like a junkie basically. plus the other symptoms, plus some really negative interactions with my now ex-PCP regarding the vicodin. sigh.

i've also been getting acupuncture for the past 2 weeks and i think it has helped, and sure maybe it was more about having an actual professional to talk to that would listen to me and try to help! no, i do believe the needling has helped as well.

i was wondering if you were taking it for neuropathy actually. i have read publications recommending effexor for various chronic pain problems.

good luck!

> WOW~so you are still having a lot of the physical side effects :(
> I went on Effexor cause my son developed a seizure disorder (my first false diagnosis for him was degenerative disorder, and death b/4 the age of 10), and I basically couldn't handle the stress. I was having horrible panic attacks, I couldn't sleep....they said effexor would help, and frankly I was spending all my time researching neuroligical conditions that my son might have~didn't do a lot of research on Effexor.
> Luckily we were misdiagnosed, but the seizures were still a bitch~and I am a worrier to begin with~!
> I do pot everyday too~it is certainly taking the edge off the naseau, but I prefer to wait on that till the kids are in bed in the evening~my days are pukey at best :(
> Damn~22 days!! Any idea when the physical BS subsides??
> Oh and thanks so much for the input~I feel like a damn heroine addict or something~EEERRGGHHH~!!
