I am having to go off effexor because I started getting excrutiating headaches.. migraine in nature.. omg.. it has disabled me.. I am down to 75 from 225 (which i had awful side effects on), and as of tomorrow, I will be at 37.5 caps.. I can't wait to get off this med.. it was great at first.. but.. now the side effects... causing me more depression then the original problem.. I need AD's, and have finally admitted that.. but. this one.. shakes head.. is not worth it. The only prob is, which drug is next? I have been on luvox, wellbutrin, zoloft - sinequan - disipramine - and lithium.. all the ssris pooped out.. and.. lithium made me a zombie.. sinequan the same. I have tried a combination of the meds.. had dexidrine added.. which helps with the energy level.. I am getting frustrated. My shrink wants to try wellbutrin on its own.. to see if that helps.. but I am tired of being tired.. and guinea pig like.. I have had dysthemia with major depression on top of it.. and now I guess I am classified as resistant depression.. what to do? I am hoping that slowing coming off the Effexor will not be as devastating as going cold turkey..
thanks for this thread.. been wonderful to see everyone's input.. hugs
