Re: Effexor withdrawal help!

In reply to Effexor withdrawal help!, posted by robinjoplin on October 4, 2010, at 21:10:40

> I'm a newbie but I need some big help. My Dr. took me off 150 mg. of Effexor XR about 10 days ago. He had me stop the Effexor, start taking 50 mg. of Zoloft for 5 days and then 100 mg. which I am staying on. I have had one decent afternoon since. Now I have horrible loud ringing in my left ear, my right rings but not as loud, zero energy, flulike symptoms which are getting a little better, feel like my head is in a fog and sometimes almost an out of body experience. I start crying sometimes driving down the road by myself....this is ridiculous. Anyone have any ideas? I am on a ton of meds for heart so have to watch what I take medication wise. Help would be appreciated. Thank you.

You probably don't want to hear this, but I wasn't on effexor that long, I really can't remember, and it took me 7 months.. yes, that's not a typo, for the withdrawal (and I tapered slowly off of it) for the effects to go away.

I had dizzy spells and mostly, whenever I bent over to put on my shoes, pick something up, whatever, I fell like I was going to throw up. 7 months of this before it finally went away. The drug should be banned in my opinion. I don't care who it helped. I'm heard even more horror stories than good ones. I had other symptoms as well, but can't remember.
