... effect anymore, I was just on it to avoid the horrible withdrawals. I finally decided I wanted off of the Effexor so I went to the psychiatrist to discuss weaning off, but due to my current life situation, my doc decided to up my dose to 75 mg every day. I am now tired, nauseous and just generally feel like crap (along with the depression I was already dealing with). I fear I've made a terrible decision and maybe should have just gotten off this poison and tried dealing with life's problems without meds. Has anyone else dealt with this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
