Yes, you should not stop taking these meds abruptly. That info should be in the educational monograph that is supplied with each prescription.
When are you getting the meds? I would recommend contacting your doctor, he may have samples, or something to cover you until you get your script.
If you're having trouble affording your prescription, you can contact the manufacturer, they all have a program to help people with difficulty paying for their meds. The manufacturer name will be on your Rx bottle. You need to start taking them again ASAP to avoid feeling even worse. Effexor of all meds is a tough one to come off as it is. Please call your doctor.
Hey guys thankx for your concern =] i got my meds thankgood ness and its not that i cant afford then i thought i had a whole weeks worth with out realiseing i ran out before i knew it will NEVER let it happen again i felt aweful thankgoodness feeling normal again today =]
Oh thank goodness! Don't double up on your doses, just resume your normal regimen.
A lot of pharmacies have a feature where you can have your Rx automatically refilled, or you can sign up for them to senf you a reminder
e-mail or text. That can be helpful. Or, put a note on your calendar, or fridge, reminding you a few days before you are due to run out, that way you won't run into this kind of thing again!
I just assumed there was a financial issue because you mentioned about when you were getting paid.
