> Why do you want to discontinue Effexor? Your dose of 225 mg is not very high and I'm wondering if your doctor should try raising it.
<<<<<<
Poop-out? Tired of being on meds, felt like I was doing reasonably well, good work function. My pdoc and I decided to taper off and see how I would do. I got to 187.5 mg. and then I got into a serious car accident on March 10. Concussion, ruptured breast implants, torn rotator cuff, serious cervical sprain, and car completely totalled. I was rear-ended by a driver doing 50 MPH while I was sitting at a red light. He did not see me as he was talking on his cell phone(!)
I am not able to work, do not know when I will be able to return to work and have to have one or more surgeries. Quite a mess. So my Pdoc raised my Effexor back to 225 mg. and was going to start me on Neurontin but my insurance denied it. So we are going to try Lithium. It just scares me to add something else. I have so much going on medically now.
