And Away We GO!!

Venlafaxine Extended Release (XR) pill—Effexor...

I am three days into a 9-12 week journey to come off Effexor. I detail the issues involved here. I am taking 1/2 my previous dose, and will do so for 2-4 weeks when my dose will 1/2 again.  The past 3 days, I have been feeling periods of dizziness. Thus far, I have had no emotional response to reduction in medicine. I fear a rough road. I will post more as I continue along this uncharted path for me.


About ~Drew

I am a survivor of childhood torture. Each day, I put one foot in front of the other, moving forward. To do any less would spell my own destruction. My music/poetry/prose deal with the devastating effect of this kind of abuse on a human being: me. My experiences/thoughts/ideas/misconceptions are exposed here for all to see. Here. I am lain bare, naked, hidden only be the cloak of anonymity.
