I have not checked in in quite a while.
I don't have a chance to check in, but hope everone is at least doing OK.
I joined this thread as I trying very hard to get off Effexor.
Apparently I am not alone in my misery.
I have been tapering off of Effexor.
Cut back from 75mg to 37.5mg around Jan. 20
Cut back from 37.5 mg everyday to 37.5mg every other day on March 8.
Doc told me do on and off for 12 days or so.
Well I am having a real tough time.
I've got those darn "brain shivers" that are driving me bonkers.
I'm going to try and tough it out and get off of this stuff.
I will try and report my progress.
Let's all try and hang in there.!
That was a week or so ago.
I am still having problems, but they are les severe.
I only missed one day of work.
Having a bit of a problem concentrating.
I have been taking fish oil capsules and trying to drink as much water as possible.
Are there any other nice tips on any type of OTC or even Rx that folks have used to help along this wonderful journey.
