I did not miss a dose while I was on Effexor for 6 mo. I went cold turkey of getting off Effexor April 4 and like I've said in past posts, the effects of high BP vs the effects of withdrawls are for worse in the long run. I'm still trying to find out how long this feeling lasts - I guess when someone gets off Effexor, they no longer feel the need to encourage the sufferers.

I don't think I will go on any kind of "happy" pills after this, unless I do some research first. I want to know that I'm going to have a happy life w/o ripping my husband's head off or my own and NOT have body damaging effects while on them. I'm not going to go on another happy pill just to quit the withdrawl effects of another.

One thing I DO suggest for ppl trying to get off effexor, DON'T put yourself into a possible stressful arena while experiencing the withdrawls. It's like putting yourself into a fighting bull arena and you hope you can find the door out quick enough. It's NOT a good idea. I ended up driving home late at night from visiting family. It was either drive and get away from the situation or stay there and experience more emotional pain. (BTW, I did arrive home safely after a 6 hr drive and a 2 hr nap).
