It is 3:30 AM and I just woke up from a horrible nightmare. It is day 7 of being off of Effexor. The nightmare left me so shook that I am still feeling paranoid. Thanks to you guys I knew that getting nightmares from Effexor withdrawing is typical. I feel like those zaps are my brain misfiring *shrugs* I really pray that not getting sleep because of nightmares doesn't become the norm. Since getting off of Effexor, by 7 PM every night I can't take the dizziness anymore and I fall into a deep sleep and wake up at 9 PM so I won't be as tired with that extra sleep. Anyways before these nightmares and after getting off Effexor I was having long sleeps over night where I felt like a long complex dream where I remembered the plot of it vividly. I would wake up right away as soon as the dream ended, like tonight but this time it was plain horror! My dream went like this- I had got drawn into hanging out with a new love interest and his family and they always stuck together at his house. Turns out they lure people in and make them part of their gang. Any attempt at leaving will result in your murder. Well I got the cops attention focused on us all stuck in the situation which lead to the gang being busted but not all of them went to jail and since I was the newest member they suspected me and I had it coming, a whole new life if I was lucky to escape death first. How crazy! I woke up paranoid of who could be lurking around and contemplating my vunerability if the situation were true. I never was like this before and I want it to end! I know its a dream so I haven't done anything to exhibit paranoia but man if these horror dreams keep happening like others have said it does- no fun as if we haven't been through enough bad unproductive days that made us get on the Effexor to begin with. The withdrawal symptoms of Effexor can be quite interruptive to one's life.
