So, I fought anxiety and depression about two years ago. I went through about three antidepressants before I found one that didn't give me hellish side effects, and that was effexor. It worked wonders for me and got my life back on track, but I have glaucoma so my doctor didn't want to leave me on it for longer than I needed, so I was taken off and I was fine for about two years like I said. Well, when I was coming off of it the withdrawls were not so fun. I was a complete mess for about three days, but then was okay again. I started having anxiety and depression again about a month ago, and I saw the doctor and she put me on Zoloft, and it just made me nauseous and gave me headaches. When I was withdrawing from Effexor before, I swore that I would never go on it again, because like i said, I cant use it long term because of the glaucoma and I didn't want to go through those side effects again. Well, I have had enough of my anxiety and depression and I am ready to move on with my life so I called my doctor and asked her to put me on effexor again. I gave up on worrying about the three or four days of hell and realized that its worth it, if it makes me feel better again. So, wish me luck. I pick up the script tomorrow. Fingers crossed it will help me as much as it did before, and hopefully when its time to come off of it, I can handle it a little better!
