Are you int he UK?? Just my US friends never know what a spliff is!! *g*

I have to admit to smoking quite a bit extra during effexor withdrawal... it helped me sleep through it, and helped calm downt he shakes I was suffering from! It also helped ease the nausea strangely enough!! It didn't help the dizzyness or electric shocks, but it helped me stay still and nto move so they were kept to aminimum!!

You WILL get through this...

I am just so angry this week about ssri's... I will never ever take one again as long as I live...

Oh, and I came off Effexor in conjunction with a friend coming off a 5 year heroin addiction. he'd been maintaining on methadone for 4 weeks prior to our withdrawal... I don't want to sound like a drama queen, but effexor withdrawal seemed a lot harder in comparison.
Speed come downs are bad in me... but at least they only last a few days, not weeks like bloody Effexor!!!! And I haven't been near speed in quite a few years :o) And - the biggest point here... Effexor is PRESCRIBED BY A DOCTOR!!!!!

Sorry... I'm in rant mode!!!

Nikki xx
