Effexor Xr withdrawals
clumberspanielmom posted:
I have recently discontinued taking the Effexor and have to say that I basically had a pretty easy time coming off the med compared to what others have experienced. I found that I did pretty much live on Dramamine for the first two week and am lucky that Dramamine doesn't make me tired.
I am curious if anyone else has experienced rapid weight gain/swelling from discontinuing Effexor? I have read that many lose their Effexor weight when discontinuing but it seems to be having the opposite effect on my body. I had bloodwork ran and it all came back fine so my Dr. and I are both at a loss. I am thinking of going back on the med if this is going to be the effect of not taking it.
i am so frustrated!!!!!
