> I can not add one thing to what has been said by everyone on this subject except for this one thing. I am so angry at the psychiatrists that I have tried to explain all of this to only look at me as if I am lying. In the past I have been afraid to tell them that I can tell when I have missed only one dose. I can feel the withdrawl symptoms very quickly. I would say within two days I should be locked away. They tell me that is way to soon to feel the way I do. I thought I was crazy and felt very alone until this morning. While reading all of these posts I cried, became very angry, felt relieved to know that I am not alone and have now ended with the feeling of hopelessness. Depression ruined my marriage. I begged my wife to wait for the "right" medicine but after close to 20 times in the hospital she couldn't take anymore. Effexor was what I thought to be my savior. It was for awhile and I thought that if she would have waited we would have made it. I know that is not true now. Now I know she would have left me because of effexor. I have tried to go off from it several times and each time I end up in the hospital. I feel ashamed of myself because I find it very hard to take control of my life. I am very lonely but I know no one wants me especially like this. I think I was better off without antidepresents than with them. I know I am rambling and I appologize. I find it very hard to put into words how I feel. Thankyou everyone for sharing your experiences. Doctors need to know about this. Are any reading this post and all the others. I hope so. There ignorance can only be tolerated for a short time.

Dear Kevin,
I was very touched by your post. I to know the effects of Effexor.What can we do? Who can we trust to hear our cries of disgust.?Last week I started to run out of my Effexor and I didn't have enough money to refill my prescription.I begged and asked everyone I could find. Finally the Salvation Army helped me out.Do any of you have any idea how afraid I was?I'm sure I must have come across just like a drug addict. I'm very afraid. I know I can't afford this very much longer but I also know what happens to my brain and body if it's no longer there.I'm very afraid.
Thanks for listening
