I have been emotionally on a roller coaster since I came off. It is getting alot better and its been 11 days. I do blow up on occasion and I either take a walk or get my mind focused on something else. I have also been out of work for a month so I am usually sitting and thinking about what to do next. My wife has been helpful noticing my tendencies and letting me know ,she says she can see it in my eyes, but mostly I have been able to think back and know that I dont want that type of attitude and it helps. Try picturing yourself when you feel great either in the future or when you did either 5,10,30 min ago. The brain zaps and all the other physcial/psycological effects have been getting betterhour by hour, day by day. I do agree with some of the other posts, (if you are a diabetic you do need insullin). For me I need to be off all medication (alcohol also) to feel better. If I get to the place where more than one professional thinks that a ssri will help then I will do the research before going on any medication. Meds do help but the body is a incredible machine and for me diet,exercise, living clean with clean thinking make me feel 100 times better than I felt on effexor. Positive thinking has done for me what no drug has ever done, made me happy. Keep trying all of you and god bless.
> Can anyone speak to the emotional part of coming off Effexor? How long does it take for your emotions to settle down? I'm several weeks out now and not having the dizziness and brain zaps, but my emotions are raw with a capital R. I'm hoping this is temporary and not the depression coming back.
