RiPeDi posted a topic in Introductions and updatesHi to all. I've been following this blog for the last two months. Short introduction I'm 27 years old and I'm from Portugal. I started to have panic attacks suddenly and I was medicated with 75mg of Venlafaxine (effexor) and 0.5 mg of alprazolam (i think the same as Xanas) for 6 years. When the panic attacka subsided, sometimes i would forget to take the medication and always felt weird symptoms after 3/4 days. Then got awared that it was withdrawal symptoms. Since last months of medication i was feeling emotional numbness and mainly sexual dysfunction.
