> My Doctor gave me Samples of this drug Effexor Which I took for about a month and I went off last Thursday. He had written me a prescription for 3 more months, I didn't fill it because of cost, But anyhow, the last 5 days have been horrible, I thought I had a flu, then thought it was a problem with my ears causing this dizzyness, etc. Was even beginning to think my husband got life insurance for me and was trying to do me in. I decided to check the internet to see if this Effexor had withdrawl side effects and I see it does. I just want to know if there are any home remedies to help me throught this and how long is it expected to last? I have taken Tylenol, gravol, and even took Mersyndol last night. I'm so sick of feeling this rotten.

Honestly, I slowly got off of it, and now am thinking I didn't go off slowly enough (was about a three week period) and have officially been off for about 6 weeks. I am still feeling the withdrawl...but you have to understand that I am a very sensitive person to drugs of all sorts. I don't know what else to tell you except that in time I am sure it gets symptoms seem to stay for a week, and when that week is done, other ones arise...but I know this won't last forever...just hang in there...I know it's hard...I am dealing with it too, but I am finding this site very helpful. A lot of people recommend taking other things to help with the symptoms, but if you can stand it, just plug through it...that's what I have done at can't last forever.
