Effexor.....ever been on it?

How did it make you feel if you missed a dose?  How did it feel to come off of it?

Yesterday I missed my dose.....just totally forgot and today I have been so ....ill.  I was having a hard time focusing, I felt dizzy, I had a headache, it almost felt like I had vertigo.

Do those syptoms sounds like something a missed dose of my effexor could have brought on?

No but I am on cymbalta. I have missed a dose and I didn't feel any effects. Have you googled effexor and side effects? I don't really think missing one dose would do that. Are you on any other meds?

Yes. Missing a dose was god awful. Migraines, throwing up it was horrible. I'd also get really really emotional if I forgot a day

Oh yeah?  Great.  I am only supposed to be on this med for 6 months, I cannot fathom how it is going to feel to come off them completely, though I know my doc will slowly wean me off. 

If my symptoms were from missing 1 dose, oh my god, I felt like I was dying!

I never have those symptoms, but I seem to fall off my rocker emotionally. It's as if I'm pregnant again whenever I miss a dose!

Coming off it, even slowly, put me inpatient :-/ it is AWFUL and one of the most addicting medicines there are

Wow. I am reading WebMD right now and ppl are talking about their symptoms, they mention everything I did, right down to the feeling of vertigo. Damn, I will never miss a dose again.  This is horrible.
