I've been away from the forum for a looooooong time but I need your help. As there is currently no Search facility, I feel I have no option but to start a new thread. I was on venlafaxine for just 2 months for anxiety, maximum dose of only 112.5 mg daily. With the consent and approval of my GP, I came off this drug over 10 days (my GP had suggested 7 days but I extended it by cutting the 37.5 mg tablet in half).
The withdrawal symptoms have been awful. This is my third day off this drug completely and today is worse than yesterday, which was worse than the day before. I feel an utter mess. Does anyone have any advice for me or has anyone been through this? I've sent an email to my neuro nurse today but I can't bear the thought yet of actually speaking to her or my GP on the phone.
I know this drug has been mentioned before but I don't know where to begin to look in the forum archives.
