> > Can't tell you how much I appreciate that link :O) I've been in the hospital for two weeks and went from 225 mg of Effexor to NONE over a five day span.
> Glad it helped. I hope you're feeling better soon. It's been a little over a week since I quit now. I'm feeling a lot better now. I have been taking choline and lecithin twice a day, but don't know if it has any effect because improvements are gradual. If you get to the point where moving around doesn't make you ill, I really recommend mild exercise (if possible), or just doing something outside to keep your mind off things (for me it was planting vegetables in my garden). Anything to keep you from dwelling on the depressing thought of how long the symptoms will last.
> I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow to get a prescription for something else, in case my panic attacks come back. But I don't like the side effects of any of the drugs I'm reading about. Starting with the worst one first though, I think I'll do my own research before taking the next one I'm prescribed.
> I've been off for a week as well..and the emotions are unbelievably bad. I have gotten in two verbal fights within the last few days at the grocery store and then walmart. Anyways... the physcial side effects have finally went away and what helped me was taking BUspar and Klonopin. This has been a godsend and others the emotional side I realize will just take time to gradually go away. This Effexor stuff is a NIGHTMARE- but at least we all have each other to relate to and have support.
