I am 23 years old and have been suffering with depression/anxiety for years now but I never got any kind of medical help for it. I figured it was time to get some help before anything got worse. I went to the doctor and she put me on Prozac at first. I took one that day and another the next. After doing some research on Prozac I decided I didn't wanna take it anymore and that I wanted to try something different. Plus my uncle had a bad experience with it and it completely turned me away. Anyways, no ten my doctor prescribed me Effexor and I've had a ridiculous amount of symptoms after only taking 50 mg (25 mg at a time). I was at work when I took the first 25 mg and out of nowhere I got nauseous ( I ended up vomiting 3 times at work that night), I was extremely dizzy I the point where I could barely stay standing, I was all of a sudden very tired, and also felt hot flashes.. Then that night I was due to take another 25 mg before bed. I took the meds around 10:30, didn't fall asleep till almost 4am.. I was tossing and turning all night,woke up at 6am with incredible anxiety and nausea..
Ugh I don't know if I can handle this...
