As my blog heading says “Getting Off Effexor,” how’s that going, you might ask?
Two days ago I dropped to one half of my original dosage. That’s one tablet a day. I had been taking two half dosages for the past three+ weeks.
This new drop now feels drastic. Shopping in a busy Sunday Whole Foods, I careened around other racing shopping carts with a rising sense of self-consciousness and mild paranoia. By yesterday my head was spinning whenever I turned it. Today I am weak and deflated. This is all with taking the new half dose only in the evening!
I am wondering if I should be alternating going without during the day. Any thoughts?
I probably need a strong motivational quote about now to get me through tomorrow. I am also fasting for a colonoscopy then. Millennial darlings, the preparation will be vastly improved, Science willing, when your time comes!
