Withdrawal - attempt number III
Updated: Oct 4
One day Ill get around to typing up some notes from my journal on here re my reliance on and battle with venlafaxine (addiction and it is a fucking addiction, Google the topic).
I've been on and off this fucking horrid drug for a while now. I am now on withdrawal attempt 3. The last attempt was successful temporarily but life and people come along and kick you in the nuts and TADA! You're back on the chemical crutch's to help get you get along.
I hate this. I hate this drug. I hate the sluggish fucking brain fog and physical sickly feeling that goes with taking it.
I resent the illness that means I need the drug in the first place. I hate it.
But its happening.
Right now I'm back down to 75mg from 180mg and 500mg at the beginning of this year 2022. I hope to cut tge dose again by 25mg soon.
