I was on Effexor XR for around 8 months and I never had any problems when I stopped.
Morning: 150mg Effexor XR and 100mg Epillim EC
Lunch: 100mg Epillim EC
Night: 30mg Avanza and 100mg Epillim EC
Avanza would knock me out in 50-60 minutes and I could sleep all night and day on it. Waking up was a real bitch though because it felt like I had been up all night drinking and then had 3 hours sleep. The doctors’ solution? Double the dose. The dick head. This is when I stopped because I lost trust in my doctor and couldn’t financially afford it. ?I admit when I was on this combo I was acing every test at college and when I was working I would do the work of 2 men (or 5 women :p ). After around 12 months when I was more financially secure I saw a reputable Psychiatrist who specialised in Depressive Illness and he put me back on the same cycle except half the dose of Avanza and I felt nothing that time around. Then came around 4 years of mixing and matching until I finally thought fuck it.
Anti depressive drugs are a peculiar thing.
@ bohm: I can’t remember the name of the anti-anxiety drug I was on but I think it started with a ‘Z’.
I'm a big fan of 50 Cent, or as we call him in Zimbabwe, four hundred million dollars.
