My decision to stop taking Effexor cold turkey has been and will continue to be met with mixed reactions. It still comes down to the fact that I cannot reach my doctor in time and I was not doing well enough that waiting for my doctor was a good idea.
So, what is it like for me right now? I’m pretty out of it. I was dizzy this morning but that has turned into feeling spaced out. Coordination isn’t where it normally is and it does take me a few extra seconds to understand what’s being said/asked and for me to get my thoughts together. Also, some heavy metal music came on and I found it so overwhelming I couldn’t focus on turning it off so someone else has to.
Overall I could feel worse but I’m not feeling like my normal self. I do hope this is the worst of it because nothing about this is fun.
