In reply to Effexor withdrawal - very bad news, posted by janey on November 1, 1998, at 16:30:34

I am 19, I have been dealing with the symptoms of depression for possible 5 or 6 years now, and as of only two weeks ago did I try a medication. Due to illegal substance abuse through highschool my problems were not recognized, but after having nearly a year of sobriety, I find I truly need help. I recently tried Lexapro, but did not sleep for 50+ hours straight, followed by 1 hour of sleep, which I then woke up from with a migraine that lasted over 8 hours. I called my doctor and stopped immediately. As of yesterday I am trying a new medication, Effexor, which has led me to this website. I was told by my doctor that if I am to stop taking Effexor I should immediately seek medical attention. I then spoke with a friend of the family, who is a well credited psyciatrist. I asked him what he knew and he tried to explain the severity of the withdrawl. Seeking more information I searched the web for some personal responses to the withdrawl from Effexor. I am now quite worried as I am young, in great physical health, and have extensive plans for my future. Although I truly feel I need help through medication, and don't want to take the risk of not taking it, I don't want to happen to me what I have just read. Please respond to this or email me personally with advice. I am very concerned. Thankyou.

Andrew Phelps
