Day 15 = 37.5 (Saturday 1-8-05)
Day 16 = 37.5
Day 17 = 37.5 – Took 1 Klonopin – I think, cant remember!
Day 18 = 37.5
Day 19 = 37.5 - staying on this dose until end of January due to ski trip. But I am tempted to take it every other day. But I know I need to wait until I can stay home if needed. I am feeling fine. The “brain zaps” are getting less and less intense and less frequent, as is the irritability and short temper. So, my body is adjusting at its own pace. Real test will be when Im off completely! Cant wait!

I will say this: I have been able to exert myself physically without getting a migraine! This is soooo fantastic, because I had a hard time working out or skiing or exerting myself in almost any way and I didn’t know it was the Effexor that was causing them. Also, sweating is much less. Not wanting to get out of bed in the morning and wanting to sleep 10++ hours is slowly improving. Sex drive is slowly improving.

I have to wonder if I was already prone to migraines and sleeping, if the Effexor didn’t augment those tendencies??? Anyone else see that kind of pattern in their experience? If it’s a side effect of medication and I am prone to those things anyways, it must augment them….it makes sense, doesn’t it? Renee.
