Last Night Gus

Standard

Last night I took half a bottle of effexor.

Last night I couldn’t sleep because of the pain.

Last night I was so nauseous I wanted to tear out my stomach.

This morning the pain had subsided substantially, but I was still nauseous, and with that came dizziness, shaking, weakness, blurred vision, fatigue, and so much more.

I’m too sick to eat, and even sipping liquids are hard.

I don’t know what I was trying to accomplish. Whatever it was, I don’t think I succeeded.

Overdose

Standard

I’m overdosed on effexor last night. It wasn’t a fun night. ┬áIt’s not a fun morning. More to come.

Tapering off Effexor

Standard

I saw my doctor this morning. She agrees that I need to stop the effexor. I’m supposed to taper off of it over the next two weeks, then go back in to talk about new fibro med options.

She also wants me to see a psychiatrist to find something for my depression and anxiety that doesn’t also make me crazy and suicidal. I have an appointment for next week.

I haven’t been sleeping much, and the large amount of laxatives I’ve been taking have me perpetually nauseous. I’m not looking forward to stopping my effexor and having my pain levels go way up again. Hopefully we can find an effective replacement quickly.
