I have thought long and hard, or at least as long and hard as LBD will permit, about going back on Effexor. Yes, I agree, stopping Effexor may have accelerated my LBD issues. But that is a small price to pay for the misery Effexor caused me. The side effects of Effexor are insidious. But, after a long time on the drug, I realize I was an emotional zombie in every way!
No, I would rather live alone in a locked room than go back on Effexor. And think about it; I never heard anyone tell a Heroin addict to go back on Heroin! And when I was a drunk, no one ever told me that I should not stop drinking. Am I having issues. Yes. But some of these issues are being caused by self-centered, egotistical, morons that believe they are the only people with the ability to reason.
No thank you. I will NEVER take an anti depressant again. The rest of the world will just have to learn to deal with me. Or, they can leave me alone.
