I am coming off of 75mg effexor cold turkey and am experiencing migrains nausea panic attacks muscle spasms constant bathroom trips and hunger-what should I do and am I at risk of hurting my body long term by doing this?
Do not go off of Effexor xr cold turkey...you need to contact your treating physician right away and set up a proper tapering schedule. If not, then contact your pharmacist where you get it filled and ask for their guidance.
These drugs must be tapered down...so pick up the phone and make that call right now.....good luck.....and I wish you the best in your road of recovery.
