Hi! I'm 15 years old and I have been taking Effexor XR (75mg) every morning for a couple months( after trying numerous other anti depressant medications).Today due to having to quickly pack up and leave for a nine hour drive home from vacation I forgot to take the Effexor and couldn't take it later in the day because it messes up my sleeping patterns.I have been feeling angry,sad,easily irritated and have slept a lot as well as used the bathroom many times(number 2). My stomach is upset and I am really warm with a bit of a fever.I also feel as though i could throw up at any second. Could somebody tell me if this is withdrawal from the medication or if I'm just sick?Thank you and sorry for the tmi!
Hi my name is Karen, I've taken Effexor for many years. It is possible you are having withdrawl symptoms, every person reacts differently to antidepressants. If you took your next dose a scheduled, and you remain sick, it cold possibly be illness instead.I hope.you get to feeling better regardless!
Yes must be a withdrawal, a pretty severe one probably due to your age and the fact you haven't been on it long. If I forget to take effexor for a day I tend to get dizziness, headaches and get really emotional. Other than that haven't experienced anything else, best too talk to a gp.
