I am taking 75mg Effexor XR, 2x a day. For 2 days I was unable to take it due to BS insurance! For those 2 days, I felt completely "out of it!" Very dizzy and off balance, almost as if I was drunk! Finally after reading on the Internet about Effexor XR, I found out you should NEVER "cold turkey" just quit taking this. My insurance just didnt want to pay for it. I told this to my pharmacy and they were able to at least get me 1 more month until further notice! My question, is this typical of missing 2 days of this drug? I wondered if anyone else had this happen? It's the only thing I can think of that made me feel so weird. Now that I have taken it for 2 days since then, those weird symptoms have gone away. Guess I won't be skipping any doses in the future!
