Alway's Rosie, thanks for the advice. No she didn't mention at home just to try to it for 20 min. at the office. Yes I wish I had had more time but I can go in again and give it a shot. Yes that is a new one I put on the bottom I thought it was time for a change. Oh I used your bean pillows you sent me they stay warm for a long time. Thanks again for making them for me.
Hey Ginny I hope your treatment this afternoon was a great one and you can have a few days of releif. The real fear I have a switching is I read that it's hard to get off effexor and she isn't weening me off she's just changing them. I talked to a friend of mine and I'm gonna stay on my effexor until I get a chance to go spend a week at her house. Since I live alone maybe I'm being paranoid but I'm fearful of crashing from getting off the effexor. At least I will feel more comfortable if I'm with somone. I don't think to many other drugs would bother me and anti-d's do.
Redrose, I'm sorry for the depression you have had to go thru. I guess that's what I'm afraid of is the opposite happening if I quit taking them so abrutly. effexor is the only drug that has never seemed to give me any problems. I know that cymbalta is supposed to be good for nerve pain too so I imagine that's why she did it but I would feel better is she had wheened me off of it first.
