I primarily weaned myself off effexor becuz of my pdoc. She had become such a b****. I went months without seeing her because I was truly doing fine. I had shortly lost my insurance and she said she would see me for free.. giving meds for free. I thought that was kind of her. After seeing her again after such a long time, and I was late, she says: "you're always late for your appts and thats if you even come to them, if your not going to be responisible, maybe I just wont give you any more meds!!" Then again after some time as she was counseling me with my emotional issues also, allowing me to vent to her, one day I went there very upset over some stuff.. I told her I wanted to get into some things I never discussed before.. she said.. "you need a therapist, I dont want to deal with it". At the end of the session, she asked if I had anything else to say.. I said to her, no, you dont want to hear what I have to say anyways.. she said in a very direct way and with a blank expression, "you're right, I'm tired." (end of session). Then the final blow as I was contemplating coming off meds anyways, last and final session with her, she was handing me my meds as I was talking to her about how to handle coming off, while still holding them she said "are you going to take these or what". I took them, and she said "you have been giving me nothing but attitude, take your pills and leave!!". She literally stomped away not even looking at me.

She is well known in the medical community, I"ve had several physicians tell me "oh she's great". Great at what.. ???

So now 7 weeks off effexor, coming to realize I cant fly solo.. it's been really tough. She kinda squashed my faith in finding someone who would have my best interests, physical and emotional health, at heart.
