oh It's ironic alright. I tried several times to get off effexor. I am FINALLY effexor free. Have been since January 1st this year. Actually I am drug free of anykind. I could have taken prozac or wellbutrin to help with the side effects of effexor withdrawl. My doctor too recommended it. I thought the same way you did. Drugs to get OFF drugs?? No thank- you. Thinking back....yeah I should have had some prozac. If I had to do over, I would have taken the prozac. However, if you insist on getting off the effexor Rx free, there are some things to help but remember you are just MASKING the withdrawl symptoms. The meds that make you sleepy so you pass out work great, if ya wanna be sleepy! Benedryl and anti-vert. (any over the counter motion sickness drug will do) But I had two jobs and a three-yr-old. I couldnt take the 'sleepy drugs' and still function. I DID find that a PMS drug helped some and the "fake energy" tabs helped alot. Around these parts we have, Stingers, No-doz, mini-thins, stay-awake tabs. etc. I am not sure if it was just me since I have never had anyone else on here post about those drugs helping out but for me they worked great. I would take half a tab of the anti-dizziness drug and a no-doz and feel great for a bout 4 hours anyway.
anyway....hang in there. it gets better.
