In reply to Re: Anyone NOT had trouble getting off this med? sheri, posted by Clayton on February 7, 2004, at 21:43:52

I posted earlier about wanting to get pregnant and coming off of Effexor. I had a Dr appointment with someone new...just moved here from another city. I told her my story of being on 75 mg for only three months. She said 75 mg will be easy ( I am skeptical but anyway)
She looked at my meds and said it isn't the kind you can break so she she gave me samples of one week's worth of 37.5. After the one week I am too stop completely. My question is what if I have bad withdrawls from this and does they seem okay? I don't have the white capsules but the caplets I think they are called with the medication loose inside. Anyone break those and pour a few grains out to help with withdrawls? She told me I cannot break them but I have heard good stories in here about perhaps doing so if needed?
I also have completely lost my appetite and that is another reason to get off of them. I am down to 109 lbs. Does this sound familiar to someone else in here? But this isn't my main reason for quitting.
Bottom line is I would rather have mild depression while pregnant than take any chances so I will be gratful once I am completely off of them.
