The dysregulation caused by psychiatric drug withdrawal affects all the systems in the body.

 

 

This is a common symptom of dyautonomia or dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system. Your improvement is typical of withdrawal-related dysautonomia.

Thanks for your reply. I.m going to look this term up with much interest. Can.t wait for your med normal screening either. I had a quick look at dysautonomia and it showed me another example of how poor drs knowledge is, at the dr earlier this year i spoke of bp type symptoms since stopping effexor (almost 3 years ago at that point), it was put down to anxiety or me imagining it. No surprise to you i.m sure.

On effexor for at least 11 years. Last few years going through ivf treatment dose has ranged from 150-200mg. Mainly 150 though. Tapered from about 175mg mid jan 2017 to zero mid april 2017. 2&1/2 months of straight hell. Getting there now though.

Thanks for your reply again, it sounds like many things that happen could come down to this? Things like twitching muscles, muscle pains, nerves going crazy in parts of about body etc? I've heard many talk about racing heartbeats, I think it already explaines the sensitivities to stimulus? Do you agree with this? Funny thing, I've got Metallica going very loud in my car and it's still gets to me but not like it used to. Having it mess up my emotions a little bit and sometimes make tears come out isn.t going to stop me anymore. Thanks again, Gus.

Yes, the autonomic nervous system regulates many things, including blood pressure, heart rate, temperature regulation, muscle tension.

These people, who are tagged "immediate ADR", have symptoms that are like protracted withdrawal syndrome but they don't have withdrawal syndrome, they have similar symptoms because their nervous systems were upset by taking the drug. Their recovery is slow, with frustrating waves and windows, like people with withdrawal syndrome. Since they had a serious ADR to an antidepressant, they probably should not consider reinstatement.
