Hi - congrats on finding the board. I was as relieved and happy as you sound.

If you don't mind my asking, why would a doc have put you on effexor if you don't think you were depressed to begin with? A lady I know was put on lexapro as a "just in case" medication after her hysterectomy. That's not safe, IMO. I understand wanting to make sure she didn't have a bad experience, but shouldn't the doc have waited and monitored her before giving her something like an antidepressant?

Anyway, go back through the archives (if you haven't already) and read up on all of the experiences here. Frankly, as awful as this experience is for you, your patients will benefit from your experience with this. You can use this as an opportunity to "educate" doctors. All of us need to "educate" our medical professionals, since the FDA and the drug companies don't plan to. Take care of yourself and hang in there!! Thanks for your post.

> OMG I am SO glad to have found these postings, thank U all. I thought I was insane. Niether the doctor that put me on exefore nor the pharmacist had a clue what was going on. Worst part were the dreams......and they didnt stop when i was awake. I so thought I would be trapped like that for ever. I cant believe I was given such a dangerous drug with so little information about it (That said, i am a student nurse, and MIMS...our subscription guidline book..doesnt list many of the withdrawal effects).
> Dont even think i WAS depressed, not B4 the effexor
