good afternoon. i am currently going thru effexor withdrawal, and it has not been an easy time. i started weaning off back in november. i had physical symptoms such as dizziness, brain “zaps””, vertigo, some fatigure, but the emotional symptions have been really tough: crying spells, feeling suicidal, mood swings. last week i had a really good week and i thought i was in the clear as far as withdrawing from effexor, but this week has been horrible. one friend suggested that i check in to a hospital. i am really scared about how long it’s going to take to get thru the emotional backlash of this medication. i wish i had NEVER taken effexor. the pain i’m going thru now is not worth it.
