Is there something to take when I run out of Effexor and experience flu-like symptoms? My prescription company takes 2 weeks to process and deliver my Effexor and I ran out a couple times. I wish there was another helpful drug to avoid these symptoms.
You need to ask the prescription service to fill it before you run out they need to know that you cannot stop cold turkey from taking this it can make you very sick they should know that
And besides running out and not taking them which is serious because of the withdrawal effects, you're body keeps having to readjust to the med every time. You could maybe try a benzo to help get you thru but you need to talk to your pharmacy and make them aware this is a drug you cannot go without!!!
Make sure you request your medication 2 weeks prior to needing it. Nobody should have to wait for their prescription as long as 2 weeks. Worse thing is to have withdrawals from Effexor. Must keep taking it every day.
