Yes, I went crazy when I went off. I totally overreacted with lots of rage to many situations. I also felt hopeless and suicidal, and had intense anxiety when going out in public. It did fade away over time - for me (I guess I'm "special") the majority of the symptoms faded away over about two or three months, to return sporadically, in a lessened form, still to this day (several years later). But it's not you, and don't let anyone tell you that this is how you are without medication. This is what the medication does to people when they try to get off! I had never experienced in my life the things I experienced while getting off of Effexor. To get off, I took a semester off of college, because I couldn't function. But it does get better, and, from reading the posts here, it gets better for most rather quickly - within a few weeks.

Good luck!
