Been a Rough Week

Thursday, April 30, 2009

My doc prescribed a different medication for depression for me since my regular one didn't seem to be doing the trick... so, after getting off of the other one, I started taking Effexor XR... I swear I completely lost my mind! I only took it for 3 days, but the side effects were so extreme I thought I was going to have to check myself in to a clinic.. Thank GOD I know my body and mind - I stopped taking it on Tuesday - I'm off of it now and feeling so much better! The only thing now is I have a slight headache and my brain is a little fuzzy - but, WOW! I think I'll stick to what I already know is ok for me and just try and get more exercise in!

Take good care of yourselves!!

    SORRY you had a bad reaction, hang in there. Will you be trying another medication, or just stay on whatever you were on before?
    hope you get to feeling better soon!
