In reply to Effexor XR NIGHTMARE!, posted by zonked on August 24, 2009, at 14:33:40

> Hi all:
> First, let me say, I have been on Effexor XR 150 for the last 3-4 weeks, and 75 before that. 75 was tolerable, noticed mild improvement, but 150 is HELL. And it didn't start at first! Only within the last week or two.
> I am scared to stop taking this because of what I've read; total time on Effexor, period, has been about two months.
> You know, I wanted to push for Vivactil, another tricyclic, or Marplan; but I was shoe-horned into accepting Effexor. I am mad about this; I should have stood my ground.
> In the past, only MAOIs have worked for me. The amount of Parnate required to have an effect is way beyond what most doctors will prescribe; and Nardil pooped out.
> My anxiety is SO bad that things which have NO threat (taking a shower, doing dishes) make me scared. Even on 2mg Klonopin a day.
> What should I do? I don't really feel rapport with my new psychiatrist, and am scared sh*tl*ss.
> I know it's the wrong thing to do; but just so it makes sense, I had to drink alcohol to quell my anxiety enough even to make this post.

Find a p-doc that will presribe parnate.
