Guest Guest_agio_* Posted August 27, 2005 Share Posted August 27, 2005 Hiya I used to post a bit on the old boards but damn if I didn't forget my user name. First off , I've been ganked for sometime, my pdoc says I'm "treatment reisitant" Personally I think I'm simply stupid and or lazy but enough of that. Anyhow, six months back I came off Celexa and went onto Effexor XR after much deliberation and some excellent input from the peeps here/there. I'm also taking Rivotril(2.5g per day) because I got hooked on the crap 12 years ago and we, me and the pdoc figure the withdrawal at this time would be not so good. Last 4 months I've been at 300 per and here's the deal. At 300 per I'm so so mood at best, can't sleep worth shit at night. Bed at 2, up at 5. Power out by noon and then sleep nicely for a few hours during the day, wake up with massive anxiety and or sadness, have lots of coffee to heighten the feeling and then think about conquering the world and promptly do nothing. Even though I'm not eating much I still haven't lost any f'kng weight. Everything seems to point to this puppy being a bust for me however prior to coming off this one I want to know if anyone here has A: Experienced the same type of listlessness/aimlessness on Effexor and B: If you did, did you increase the dose or try a new med? The pdoc is probably going to want to jack me up to 350 or more or he's thinking Cymbalta as nothing else seems to be working. Any input would be appreciated.
