In this video I talk about my experience on the antidepressant Venlafaxine (also known as Effexor). I've been on the drug for 3 years and have successfully just withdrawn from it following a long tapering off process. I discuss how effective I found this antidepressant, the side effects I experienced whist on it and when coming off it, and how I tapered off from it.

Effexor or venlafaxine withdrawal can happen with even a single missed dose and frequently occurs when patients stop their Effexor abruptly. The side effects of Effexor withdrawal - a profound malaise, anxiety and agitation, neurologic symptoms - are so unpleasant they often drive people to go to the emergency room. These side effects can be avoided by a gradual taper of the drug in combination with a Prozac bridge - 1 to 3 days of 10 mg of Prozac - to help stabilize the serotonin system.

So far this process has been smooth other than the expected mood swings and physical anxiety. I've learned more about other people and their anxiety more than anything else, and that's really beautiful. I love it when humans come together and share their struggles ~ Please subscribe and support my channel Instagram: @clarabfit

Have a beautiful day! **DISCLAIMER** - when mentioning I often feel that I need to go to the hospital, please note this is purely mental, NOT physical TLDR: Cons 1. Paranoia (daily struggle, learning to cope) 2. Anxiety Pros 1. No suicidal thoughts 2. Clear-minded 3. Increase in productivity 4. Increase in emotional awareness (medication made me numb) 5. Increase in energy 6. Overall empowerment 7. No longer relying on a daily dose to feel ok (including the risky side effects that come with missing a dose) 8. Normal appetite (effexor tended to zap appetite altogether or sometimes increase) Tips 1. Stay active (find something you love that gets those endorphins flowing) 2. Drink water 3. Try to eat well 4. Go outside 5. Get out of your comfort zone 6. Accomplish something daily (even if its small) 7. Talk to someone 8.

Update: after eight months of slow progress, I'm down to 16% of my initial dose. I've had some inevitable discomforts but all in all, manageable. This method works. Still a few months to go and I will finally be done!!! Other updates ... Down to 14% of my initial dose, and almost a year later! Will have to cut one bead at a time from now on, and super slow, so basically might have another year to go. The smaller the dosage, the more hard core. I currently have vertigo episodes and intense teeth and jaw pains. All the other stuff too : cramps, diarrhea, muscle stiffness. Had a few downright scary depressive moments and no control over myself. I no longer use the straw method, at 14 beads I simply throw them in by hand. I've purchased empty capsules and simply use the hundreds of leftover beads.

I felt compelled to do a video on Effexor XR withdrawal because I honestly never knew that this was the type of medication I was taking. Is that my fault? Probably, but it's a lesson learned. Please know this is my story and view on things, all this doesn't mean you have the same as me, but if this video can help someone out, than that's ok with me. I'm hoping I'm over the worst in case I'm not I'll do an update, if there is no update means we're all good in the hood.

I just want to reiterate that this sort of reaction to a missed dose is very uncommon. We still need to look after ourselves, though. Lots of love.

Warning, this video is quite scary and may cause nightmares to you too... this video contains alot of screaming, when I watch I cry, you too maybe also get the same reaction,... 3 hours sleep in two nights, it is now 12.30pm and I am going back to bed... and yes I know what awaits me... but exhaustion has hit me... I am so bad I cannot even leave my house to drive 40kms to get my prescription.... today is one of the worst for me for a long time. Parents this video is not really suitable for kids, this video disturbing, scary and very sad, This is what happens when you miss just one dose of effexor ... effexor medication is prescribed for people with depression, anxiety etc I also have these type of nightmares even when I take my dose properly, because of past life experiences I have experienced throughout my life and in the Australian Military.... nightmares are a common occurrence for me If you are a parent and a Pyschiatrist recommends that your child should be prescribed Effexor or any other Anti Depressant Medication including Venlafaxine, please do thorough research and think twice about this awful drug... because once you are on this drug for even a short period of time, there is no turning back... well there is, but the effects of coming of effexor can be dangerous and even deadly with an increased rate of suicidal thoughts, self harm and other dangerous side effects. My Early Teenage Years -- Verbal and Physical Bullying by School Teachers http://www.losttreasure.com.au/2014/07/02/2982/ Most of my Nightmares revolve around Confrontational Situations. situations where there is no escape... that is until I wake myself up. Hopefully within the next 6 months I aim to slowly wean off this dreadful medication under proper supervision.

Brain zaps are part of what we call medication discontinuation syndrome. Medication discontinuation syndrome are symptoms that you can see when you suddenly stop your medication. In this case were talking about what you see when you stop the serotonin enhancing antidepressants. An easy way to remember these symptoms is with the mnemonic FINISH F - Flulike symptoms. I - insomnia. N - nausea or maybe even vomiting. I - imbalance like dizziness or even vertigo like your head is spinning. S - sensory disturbances and that would be the electric shocks that seem to be coming from your brain. H - for hyperarousal and this would be anxiety, irritability, aggression or even jerkiness.

With Effexor having an opposite effect on me, causing me to become insanely suicidal, I had to get off it. This is day 4. For me, I KNOW it's NOT the same for everyone, it was a very, very easy withdrawal. Nothing like I had expected. So i only filmed 1 day.

I took this video when I was withdrawing from 300mg of Effexor. I know I look like crap, you don't have to tell me. That is kinda the point. I wanted to document how withdrawing made me feel, react. This medication is the definition of evil. I had rapid weight gain, chills, brain zaps, just plain freaking sickness. All of this is in the video. Thanks.

It's been six months since I've been off all medication and I thought I'd share with you what has helped me deal with my anxiety thus far! Shoutout to Nikki Blacketter's find your happy challenge which helped me with so much of this! A lot of these idea stem from that challenge, so I cannot take full credit https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChUEb7Fczc6jyXo-R0qnn8Q Mechanisms in the Video: 1. Take it slow -Make sure you're giving your body PLENTY of time to ween off the medication slowly, otherwise you'll want to bounce back and everything can be made worse. I took an entire year and I wouldn't have gone any faster. DO NOT GO COLD TURKEY. 2. Take Care of Your Body a. Work out, get your blood flowing, ENDORHPINS! Even if it means going for a walk everyday. b. You are what you eat, so be mindful of what you consume regularly. You would be amazed at what kind of effects food can have on your mood. Look up foods that boost your serotonin levels (eggs, berries, salmon, nuts, etc.) c. Natural supplements-- Here's what I take: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01COTKXEM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 3. Take Care of Your Mind a. Meditation/Quiet time/Prayer Need help starting? Try Headspace: https://www.headspace.com/ b. Self Help Books: -"Dare: The New Way to End Anxiety and Stop Panic Attacks" by Barry McDonagh -"You Are a Badass" by Jen Sincero c. Yoga - https://www.youtube.com/user/yogawithadriene d. Counseling/Therapy alternative: Talk to a friend or family member 4. GO OUTSIDE!! VITAMIN D!! 5. Keep a journal 6. Love yourself enough to make a change and put in the work--it pays off!!!
