> > I started effexor 18 months ago at a very low75 mg/daily dose-it didn't help and following a serious incident of self mutilation "they" increased to 250 xr/day. that was awful! the diahrea lasted almost 2 weeks-but I thought maybe I would lose some of the 30 pounds I had gained being on the drug. I love these docs that tell you what your feeling/gaining (weight)/lossing (sexuality)couldn't possibly be because of the drugs! I think they should have to take them to prescribe them. Thank goodness for the postings-I don't feel so alone and crazy! I am now withdrawing on my own and the dizziness, flu-like feeling and fatigue are terrible. I can't wait for this to be over. can any one tell me how long the head-spinning will last? its been 5 days of no drugs. also wanted to know if anyone has experiences the leg jerks, tremors and leg jitters at night like I did. thanks Helena

>I experience leg jitters at night and I am on 75mg Effexor XR . I also have leg jitters through the day and find it gets worse if I have any caffeine.
