I had a feeling everyone would agree that it seems a bit quick. I was on the 75 mg. capsule so my Dr. gave me the 37.5 capsule, hard to cut in half if I need a 1/4 pill.. I can always phone him and have ths changed or extended. I am not too worried about
that. I also have about
30 more or less 75mg capsules still...
I have no plans to take another type of medication. I orginally started on Effexor last August because I was in the middle of a divorce, moving with my kids (19yr. and 22yr) out of our home into another, and starting a new job.! I think I mentioned I also have Colitis, and due to the stress I flared up bad and ended up in the hospital for two weeks on steroid drip, lost 14 lbs and was very very ill. I am now on Remicade, and have been symptom free for 1 yr. I have adjusted to the new job, love my new home and have a wonderful man in my life whom my kids adore. I feel ready to resume my life before meds.
I know I will feel anxious,nervous , edgy and panicy during this withdrawl, but I really want to try and live my life without meds. I also know that if I decided to go back on, I will have the support of my partner and my family. I've got to give it a go. I am optimistic.
