If you can get out of the house, try to get some Benadryl. It's really the only thing that helps. I've tried everything. The other thing that hasn't harmed me is SAMe.

A week ago I started to take L-Tryptophan, but in the same week my throat has been kind of closing up on me, and I've been having an allergic reaction to something. I haven't changed anything else. Last night I simply forgot to take it, and I woke up feeling better. All I mean by this is that you have to be careful cause we are all different, and different things work well for some of us and not for others. The Benadryl, though, seems to be universal on this drama. I say this cause you're getting the Wellbutrin anyway; so you really just need to counteract whatever effect removing the Effexor is having on your system. Please post your reaction with the FDA when you have the strength to do it. I will post the link for you.

I've been doing this for three months. You'll be okay, honest!! My heart truly goes out to you. If you ever decide you want to join my list of people that are considering pursuing legal action against Wyeth for misrepresenting Effexor to us because we have been so sick, please drop me a line at and I will add you to the list.

If not, try to hang in there. Write here. Everyone is really supportive cause so many of us have had a hard time with withdrawal from Effexor, though you may be at the top of the list ;-) Go slowly. Treat yourself gently. The doctors do seem to be less than understanding abou this, which is why I think you should -- we all should write the FDA.
