I can't afford $400.00 to buy it from another pharmacy what will happen if I am off the drug for one month until I can get my prescription again? is it dangerous because I don't have a choice because I am unemployed and have to wait for the medicine to come in, please help.
hi tweet,being on it for only 1 month is realy not that long for this type of medication.however the when i read info on this med the warning said my have unpleasant effects if discontinued abruptly.your clinic must have a way of dealing with such a problem.smaller doses of ir may be available.talk to your prescribing doctor for an alternative medications...
Is there any way you can find another doc? They all carry free samples of this med. You should be ok as subzero mentioned as you are on a low dose and for not that long. If you have any pills left, open the capsules and sprinkle about half in a teaspoon of pudding or jello. Do NOT chew them. Swallow whole. Try to buy yourself a few days so you don't have to go completely cold turkey.
Good luck to you and wishing you my best!
GENERIC NAME: Venlafaxine Xr
BRAND NAME: Effexor XR
Effexor XR called Venlafaxine XR, has proven to be just as effective, while greatly reducing the price 4consumers. I really don´t know how much.
But I read that through different online pharmacies the cost of Venlafaxine
XR has proven to be around 1/2 the price of Effexor XR
Try www.thedrugcompany.com and others to compare prices.
withdrawals if you cold turkey (symptoms)
A burning or tingling sensation
I hope you have enough money, and wish I could more do for you.
Like the above said you were only on it for a month so I think if any your coming off it will be minimal but try to extend it for as long as possible and also may you can get some of the ir pills instead. Are you on any other meds. I have a friend who came off it after a couple of months and did experience some increased anxiety so maybe if you can get prescribe some lorazepam .5mg tablets if you do have anxiety and that is inexpensive until you can get back on the effexor xr. Let me know how you are doing. I think you will be fine.

Has anyone else been on venlafaxine/Effexor for 23 years? I have been concerned about long term use?
