i`m new here and looking for answers verry bad.
I`v got Effexor RX 75mg in july 2005 for the first time,my doctor put me on medication cuz i was going true a bad separation battle (Lawyers ect)I tried 75mg for about a month with no results.So he gave me 150mg right after.the thing was that i could not sleep and so he gave me some pills to help sleeping,changet them 3 times with no success.So now I just on effexor.
Last september I decidet no need to take them anymore,Big mistake...I was verry sick and after 3 days my doctor was verry upset with me and so i taket them again.This was the first time I realizet howe addictive effexor rx really are!!!And i`m pretty mad at my doctor then he newer told me about that.
Then in december I could not go to the Pharmacie to get them so i had widrawl again for 3 days,this time the pharmacie guy was the one being upset with me.But I had a reason.
Now finely I want to get off them for good,my life is getting better I found this grate Boyfriend and everything seams to take a good turn.Its the 5. day i`m off effexor rx 150mg "cold turkey" and i`m in Hell!besides the crieing,the brainshocks,dizziness and cold/hot all the time.I now having a real cold on top to,so i`m not sure whats from the widrawl and whats from the cold?my syomach is verry upset,I have a major Haedache and I just trowed up blood!
my ears are constantly ringing and my visoin is blurry like if i would be drunk.I had to send my son to my sister,then i`m in bad shape and verry mad at everything.
After reading lots of informations about widrawl I`m not sure if I can do that?
I had a down when i got effexor the first time,but i`m not really depressive newer ben.So i blame my self for this.And now it seams to me that i`m stuck with it,so what should I do?
is there anyone who went true that and is off that drug now for good?I mean this looks like if i`m stuck in a circle and i want to get out.I cant not even drive my car,I`m scared I may kill someone on the road.Help please.ThanX
