I was put on Effexor when I was 17 and suffering from depression. I had previously been on Paxil, Zoloft, and Celexa, none of which had worked for me. I wish so bad I had known what I was in for. I was taking 225mg and came down to 150mg. I am now 19 and scared to death of the withdrawal effects I am going to have to suffer in coming off of this drug. I’ve run out before for maybe two days and was suffering from “brain zaps”” and was seeing and hearing things. A friend of mine attempted suicide twice after coming off of this drug and I’m unsure of what life’s going to be like when I’m off.
