Day 27 –Thursday 1-20-05 = Today was day 2 of no Effexor, around 3pm it hit me kinda hard. I became VERY nervous, probably a panic attack like symptom (which is why I was on medication in the first place). I was confused, couldn’t focus well, vision a bit more blurry than normal, brain zaps increased, light headed, stomach slightly nauseated (sp?) loss of appetite, severe feeling of wanting to cry at any second over nothing, very welled up with emotion that was coming from nowhere. Called my doc, said to take a klonopin and an effexor 37.5 mg. I did and felt better within the hour. Guess I need to take one every other day instead of just stopping it at this ending point.

Day 28 – Friday - didn’t take an effexor today, did fine, same symptoms mentioned from day 26. took a klonopin in evening.

Day 29 – Saturday – Took 37.5mg Effexor, went to gym and exercised for 33 mintues. Didn’t push myself hard. Feeling same as day 20-25. husband has been doing pretty good in supporting me with the come & go irritability. Thank God! Renee
