Hi, y'all-I am new to this BB. My mother and I found it, looking for info. on withdrawal symptoms of Effexor. We now know that we're NOT crazy, but you have all put us at ease with your information. We have felt most of the symptoms you describe. For me, it's mostly the headaches and the "brain flashes". That is such a great name for them! I was feeling toooooo euphoric on this med. It made me feel so good, in fact, I wasn't caring whether I was late for school (I am a teacher and have always been conscientious about my job), or church, or anything. I was just too "happy" to care. I also gained weight from this, and although I'm walking 2 mi. everyday, nothing has helped. I noticed I started gaining the weight after starting the med. I also got very sleepy during the day, and got very sweaty at night.

Anyways, I thank God for this BB and website. I knew I wasn't going crazy, thinking most of these effects were from the med. I'm gradually decreasing (I'm taking 75 mg. every other day for now). My mother is not so lucky, she decided to quit cold turkey and is sorry she did. She is now experiencing night sweats,nausea, lethargy, headaches, dizziness.....
