6. One thing I'll say about Venlafaxine is don't quit it cold turkey.

Especially at the dose I was taking.



Add that to the list of crazy things I've done in my life.

Yep, because I didn't like some of the side effects.

What came next was worse.

Effexor did stabilize me enough to reveal other mental health issues I have in addition to depression.

A lot of it probably boils down to PTSD which I fiercely denied for a long, long, time.

I'll post this with the usual disclaimer -- don't ever take any medical advice from me!
