Recommended Posts

Hi, I am forcing myself to titrate by Effexor XR due to I might not be able to get anymore within a couple of months. I am also on 10mg valium. I'm thinking I should stay on the valium until I get off the Effexor. Does anyone have any experience with this and/or what would you recommend? I know you can't give medical advice; I'm just wondering about personal experience, etc. Thanks.

Welcome, linnyh. Thank you for joining us.

 

Have you seen this topic http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/2207-taking-multiple-psych-drugs-taper-the-antidepressant-first/

 

It's about that very question. Also, tips for tapering Effexor XR http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/272-tips-for-tapering-off-effexor-and-effexor-xr-venlafaxine/

 

You may be able to get generic Effexor for less than $10 per prescriptino, see http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/2411-getting-your-prescription-filled-on-a-budget/

I am on 5 mg valium and 112.5mg effexor with only about 30 days left and no way to get more. What am I going to do? Am I going to die if I go c/t?

Going cold turkey off Valium is truly dangerous. Do not do this.

 

Going cold turkey off Effexor XR is a little less dangerous but could lead to suffering withdrawal symptoms for a long time.

 

Any MD can write a prescription. Generic medications can be very inexpensive, see http://survivingantidepressants.org/index.php?/topic/2411-getting-your-prescription-filled-on-a-budget/
