> Yeah, I think the lack of seratonin is probably part of the problem--but if it wasn't helping me in the first place, it seems bizarre that it would make me feel so bad now.
> Actually, despite anxiety and my typical late-in-the-day sick feeling, I haven't burst into tears at any point today, which is actually an accomplishment. Maybe I'm on the way to improvement, although feeling sickish from mid-afternoon on makes it hard to feel too super, even if I'm slowly becoming less emotional. I'm going to try the Claritin tomorrow, in hopes that it'll "balance me out" like it has other people (I still don't understand why that is?). I'll keep you all updated. Any advice on when/if to take the Claritin for these side effects would be appreciated (though I really wish I didn't feel the need to do this after 5 weeks off effexor!)
> Thanks!

I have written a couple postings about Claratin because it helped me soooo much. I guess everyone is different though, because I never read any one else really raving about it like I do. I was taking Claratin-D either twice a day (12 hr) or once a day (24 hr). I could take it at night time and it never kept me up. It totally wiped out all of my side effects (I went off Claratin D once too early and all the sweats, crying, aggitation, nausea, "volts" etc... came right back). It took about 8-10 hours to get Claratin D back into my system after that experience. I went off 300mg Effexor in December, and I just recently quit taking the Claratin D (about two months total to get over the withdrawals). I don't believe I have anymore side effects from Effexor (I feel somewhat anxious but I think it from the Wellbutrin I'm taking now). The whole experience almost wiped me out, but I do a lot of praying and reading these postings help a lot. Please hang in there, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. God Bless, Jenna
