I was taking 75 mg of Effexor and the doc said to take 37.5 mg of Effexor for a week then stop and the original plan was to switch to Paxil the next day but Paxil caused such bad symptoms they told me to get off of it after 3 days. My symptoms from Paxil like a weird cough, feeling angry, and sleeping more got the nurses worried. Just wanted to let you know yes I am experiencing major vertigo and some zaps with being off Effexor for 8 days and now the symptoms are getting in the way of me doing stuff. I have more energy I feel more with it I feel more like myself like I am more in touch with myself but I have this vertigo, which I refer to as "Head Sommersalts" which makes me want to hold my head and close my eyes to feel together. I too have been nauseated and stomach symptoms like the flu, going to the bathroom more.. And I have gotten in itch fits and I still itch often. Anyways you guys say give it 3 weeks to notice it getting better. Thanks for the heads up. When I tried Paxil for 3 days it made me sleepy during the day, even though I took it the night before. So no Paxil or Effexor. I wish I could get something to stop the vertigo. If you would have seen my face at school this morning it showed I felt sick to my stomach ie dizzy and nautious with no appetite Anyways I'm thinking about staying off ADs but if I get my brain fog back - the original reason I tried Effexor (and it did help w/ that)- I'll try Welbutrin. Take Care! And thanks for the posts letting me know that the symptoms I have occur with getting off Effexor.
