Bruising and Effexor Withdrawal

I had terrible bruising when my psych doc raised my dosage of effexor xr to 75 mgs. I had my med doc take some blood tests to check my platelet count and it came out normal. I finally told my shrink and she started weaning me off of effexor right away. At that time it had been 3 months and up to 150 mgs.

Two days ago, after stepping down gradually to 37.5 mgs, I came completely off of Effexor. All I've gotta say to everyone out there coming off is, BE CAREFUL. I have been extremely depressed, anxious, paranoid, angry, and somewhat suicidal. It has been complete HELL! I know it'll pass but make sure your enviroment is as comfortable as can be and no ones around to push your buttons!!
