About Me: Female, 74, Dorset, United Kingdom, member since Nov 2009
I am a grandma who lives in the beautiful seaside county of Dorset on the south coast of England. I have two children, four grandchildren, and a lovely rescue cat I have called Smudge. With my doctor's help I gradually withdrew from 150mg Effexor XR daily over 10 mon
[More]ths. I finally stopped taking the medication in October 2013. I have had no withdrawal symptoms. I do have mild anxiety when I am alone.
I am 73 years old and have a reasonable social life with a senior citizens group. I do not take any medication at all, and I think I am doing really well for my age. Apart from the usual things that catch up with us as we age, I am really fit.
Hi Maddie. Thanks for the note. How are you? I hope things are going a little better. So hard to rehab after a stroke and it takes time but you WILL see results. I've been thinking of you. We are doing good here. The usual hub bub with kids and such. Hang in there. Hugs
Just a quick note to say hi! Hi, I hope you feel better sooner. These days have been hard for me. I basically feel imbalance and dizzy every step. But not while sitting or in bed, thank god. I hope you do have your family or really close friends to talk to. I know some of them won't understand you but atleast they can listen to you. God bless you. Ignacio.
