I am currently on Effexor and I can't get of it if I miss a dose I get realli dizzy feel sooo tired that I can just pass out any one out there with any advice please let me noe thank u
I am trying to do the same thing for about the 5th time. I plan to succeed this time!! My doctor has told me to just skip a day, then later, skip two days, etc. This may work, but I haven't tried it yet, I need a day when I can just stay in bed if necessary!
I also have some empty capsules and I may try opening the full ones and putting less in the empty ones for a few days first.
Good luck Akyii!!
Akyii; Just as these posts are telling you is the smartest way of going off of this medication You got answers from two of the better people here. If your only problem is you miss a dose and then fall apart that day.Is not a good excuse to stop taking it what you need to do is set an alarm or something so you don't miss doses.If you read many posts there are so many people here that it is very hard for some doctors to find a medication to help with their symptoms and you have something that is working and want to stop it because you can't remember to take one.Sounds like you still have problems and many people think they are doing very well and then go off the medication then find out they are feeling terrible and need to go back on it and then it does not work the same. And you could be much worse off than you are now. be very careful and check with your doctor.Before you do anything.
Akyii' from your email that came to me I have not been up to par lately sorry it took so long glad you are doing much better just keep hanging in there we really don't have a lot of choices. So many of these medication it gets worse before it gets better.Just keep plugging at it let me or us know if everything is going okay.
