I started taking Effexor 3 days ago. I read it has a very short life so the withdrawal symptoms may be experienced even after a dose is missed (like Paxil). A long time ago I took Paxil and the withdrawal sypmtoms were horrible (worst days of my life!) and they lasted about a week even though I tapered of. I don't know if I should keep on taking Effexor or if I just tapering off right now. I'm feeling very anxious and sad and I think it might be the meds that are making me feel that way. I won't be seeing my doctor until April the 14th and an appt. with a psychiatrist may take up to months. I'm not thrilled about the med. anymore. Any advice?
