Hi, i just found this forum and thought i'd join up.
For as long as i can remember i have suffered from depression, and after trying lots of medication ive ended up taking venlafaxine effexor for the last 3 years. It was working well for a while, but about 6 months ago i started feeling tired all the time, fuzzy head and generally awfull. Not to mention the horrible symptons if i forgot to take a dose.
Im on 75mg per day, which i understand is not as much as a lot of people need, but ive finally had enough of being unable to function properly so im to the docs in a short while to see if i can get off them.
From what i can gather its not going to be nice, but i really have had enough of being tied to them, so if anyone can throw some help or advice my way i would greatly appreciate it
