48h off effexor xr cold turkey and i feel fine?!?!

Posted by Camille Dumont on July 19, 2004, at 6:11:16

This is totally weirding me out. Due to crazy (no pun intended) circumstances, I've lost my script for Effexor xr (300mg) and Celexa (20mg) and I've been off of it for 48h.

I'm off to the walk-in clinic to get a replacement script today but you know what? I feel fine. I've had weird nightmares last night but nothing terrible ... the little cold-like symptoms yesterday but aside from that ... nothing?!?!

Is is because its not been long enough? I mean I remember going accidentally cold turkey from 75mg and it was hell after a few hours past my dose time ... so the fact that I feel relatively fine after 2 days is totally weirding me out.

Is it possible that I've been so "drugged up" on the stuff that I actually feel "better" off of it? I'm not sure if thats what people refer to when they mention "brain shivers" but on it, I always get dizzy when I turn my head ... but I got used to it ... and well, those have actually diminished in teh past two days.

Really weird.

I'm off till Wednesday so for the sake of my morbid curiosity, I'm still going to get the meds but I'm not going to take them unless I really feel the need to. For the sake of my morbid curiosity I guess.... and who knows, the knowledge might be usefull to some.

Wish me luck
