Hang in there will get slowly better...I am on my second day of total withdrawal; I was increasing the intervals between doses and I had planned to do this until the volts, nausea, headaches were tolerable but I actually went yesterday and today without a dose at all...the Benadryl helps considerably ... I do not feel good by any means but I am thrilled that I made it this far without taking any Effexor. I know , 2 days does not sound like a big deal but considering this is the third time I have tried to stop effexor, 2 days for me is great!

I have the volts but at very tolerable levels. The worst thing are the bad headaches, fatigue, terrible nightmares, lack of patience and bad temper. But after reading on this chat board that the temper and lack of patience are common withdrawal symptoms, I decided to try to accept it but control it. When I felt myself starting to "lose it" with someone or something, I simply took a deep breath and told myself these were all normal feelings, to accept them as they are temprorary , relax my muscles and talk myself down. It was difficult at times but I seemingly was able to do it. Not sure if I will be able to do this tomorrow but I now just take one day at a time and will worry about tomorrow, tomorrow!

Good luck to you.
