    Default EFFEXOR WITHDRAWLS...MODS Please leave

    Has anyone ever taken Effexor and been weened off of it? I am going through very bad withdrawals and am wondering if there is anything I can do to help alleviate these awful feelings
    I am now off the effexor and on day 2 for the wellbutrin and how i am feeling is not even functional right now

    try having a nap or just resting, but if you are that worried about it call the emerg and see what they have to say about the situation.

    Peanut, I have no experience with what your going through, so I may not be helpful in the least, but I understand that those types of medications take some time to build a level in your system that will help with the symptoms. A switch from one to the other is bound to cause you some discomfort.
    Stay at it, the welbutrin will kick in and help, but it might be a little while.
    Are you all by yourself right now? Maybe you need someone with you while your going through this?

    Moochi this is not a thread about you and your lack of work. This is about a young lady who's going through a rough spot and needs advice.

    Hey moooochi, can you lay off the whole 'looking for work/needing a job' bit already. Just leave it out of threads like this please.

    Peanut I'm sorry, I wish I could be of more help but I really don't know anything about it. I hope you are able to get the help you need though.

    Yours not Peanuts!

    Please she's looking for advice on how to get through this not to read about your work issues.
