EFFEXOR for hot flashes

Posted by kaysax on February 23, 2004, at 12:02:57

Last summer my gyn prescribed Effexor to reduce my severe hot flashes. It worked! However, my blood pressure rose, my liver functions were out of wack, and I gained weight. I slowly reduced the dosage until I was just down to a few granules. I am now off completely. I thought I was withdrawal-free; however I woke up one morning with the room spinning! It's been over 2 weeks, and I am still dizzy at times, but the wierdest sensation is a shock-like nerve tingling in my head somehow, perhaps, associated with my vision! The other symptoms, even the hot flashes which are back, I can handle; but this brain-vision thing is troublesome. I could use advise/support from any one that is experiencing the same. Thank you all....
