I cut my dose of Effexor down to 150mgs (half) a couple of days ago. Already feel withdrawal symptoms, weird feeling when I move my head, cry easily, angry easily. Not looking forward to stopping meds completely. I've been on anti-depressants for so long....I'm afraid of not being on them. Will I go back to the extreme mood swings that i had 10 years ago , before I started medications? I've had depression, anxiety, nervousness and social anxiety for so long that I don't even know who I really am. I am stopping my meds because I lost my insurance and because I'm curious as to who I will be without them now. Being on them has caused me to have low energy, I can't concentrate. I'm scared.
