Currently on day three no venlafaxine after a slow tapering (self done as my doctor was clueless to discontinuation syndrome and actually advised abrupt cessation of taking) and its truly unbearable. My anxiety is at all an time high, the headaches are manic, I feel angry all the time, have the "zaps", agitation, very very low mood and just generally am in a hellish place. For anyone reading I will NEVER take another one of these if that's your advise but please anyone in the know if you have tips or suggestions id be grateful
