raw feelings after effexor

Posted by gypsygirl on July 20, 2004, at 1:30:53

I was on effexor for 4 years. Weaned off slowly for 1 month and have been off totally now for 10 days. I heard horrible things about quitting but withdrawal wasn't bad. I had the usual flu type stuff and a few days of wierdness but over all, it was no big deal.

Now it's being interesting. I'm emotional and can cry at the sweetest and smallest things. I have an edge to I'm a teenager just discovering hormones and excitement. I have so much energy that I have trouble relaxing. I had put on over 50 pounds with effexor (which I hated!!!!)... loved to eat and veg out over computer games. Now I have little interest in food and can't sit still. I have so much energy and have trouble focusing on one thing for too long, sort of scattered, and I can't relax. Tonight I smashed into another car...just not paying attention. I was busy looking around at everything. How totally dumb!

Has anyone else gotten to this point and experienced this type of thing? I could sure use some feedback.
