>>>A really mean paranoid spirit has taken over my mind and body. Several of you have mentioned "PMS" behavior. Does this go away?<<<

Yes, it is normal and it does go away (at least, it did for me ;-) ). This very thing is the part that my mother saw, and worried that I needed another antidepressant to soften it. I didn't want to do that, so I tried to remind myself that this was part of the withdrawal and not a part of me. Telling those around me that this was going on and that I wasn't just a big ol' meanie helped, too. Patience is the biggest gift you can give yourself. For me, it took approx. 2 months before my personality began to settle back into place.

It has been since just after Halloween '03 when I quit taking effexor cold-turkey. The first two weeks were horrible, the third week was bad but tolerable, then it began to get better. Occasionally, I still wake up with the "zaps," or the brain shivers, but that is becoming more and more rare. It snuck up on me night-before-last and was quite a surprise.

Take care of yourself. Be patient and be gentle with yourself. Hang in there!
