Dr's should never prescribe antidepressants

Posted by utsuzy on November 15, 2005, at 13:25:55

I am 5 days off of Effexor and I'm horribly sick! I'm hot one minute and sweating, then cold and shivering the next. I've got the zapping feeling in my head and it doesn't just come and go. It is a constant today. Same with crying. I can't stop crying. I've been on antidepressants for almost 10 years because I had a disabling accident. When I was in the hospital and on morhpine I said that I wanted to kill myself so the doctor put me on antidepressants. I don't remember ever agreeing to be on them and I just took the medicine without really knowing the consequences. Well, this is the consequence. I've asked my doctor for years to get off of the meds because I think they really do more harm than good. And I honestly believe that I will be fine off of them. No one ever gave me a chance to go through the grieving process without being on the drugs. I know that I could have done it and that is why I am so mad at doctor's for giving these things out like candy. I don't want to go back on the meds, but I am in a wedding this weekend and I need to get rid of the zaps, crying, sweats, and shakes. How long will this last? What can I do to make it better? Does it ever get better? Please help, I'm at the end of my rope!
