... couple years ago and it made the effects of the venlafaxine much better. I felt great. But 18 months later now, I cannot get off the tramadol without getting major "zaps" and becoming so tired I'm non-functional. I take between 200 and 350 mg of Tramadol per day. I tried taking modifinal (sp? - brand is Modalert 200) as a substitute to keep me awake but it just makes me feel speedy and horrible. Please, if anyone knows how I can get off all of this -- including the effexor -- I need your advice. I'm miserable. I can't bring myself to leave home. I'm in a strange country with no friends... I'm sorry to whine. I'm just really having a hard time. I've kicked cocaine, crack cocaine, booze -- but for some reason, my body will not let go of this
U need to find a Suboxone Dr, that is what my friend did. She was hooked on the same thing, she thought that it would be silly since it isnt like oxy's but the Sub Dr. has several patients that use that and it is easier to get off of than trying and failing like my friend did, maybe this is an option, I know there is contraversy about using one drug to get off of another but I just trust the Dr. to do his job. I am so sure that they know what they are talking about. I wish you welll and the best of luck. Keep ur chin up friend...
How are you doing now? I got off Effexor but gradually, Then gradually until I took 1 pill once a week. For about a year I was off. With stress at work & my bp up & a recent breakup I started venlafaxine it’s only my forty day, but think I will be on it a while again, I need it so I can cope..I stop drinking ( which I didn’t drink all that much)& don’t do drugs. Proud of you for stopping the drugs. ;-)
