Moved this from the suicide site but really falls under the Prescription Medication topic.
When ever I run out of Effexor (normally my fault) and miss taking for a day or two all i can think about is suicide. Told my dr. I was going to kill myself the last time this happened and he just yelled at me to watch my meds closer or he's going to check me intoto my other doctors the hospital. He was going to take me off but then changed his mind due recomendation. Was off of effexor for 2 days because I forgot to to pick it up on Sunday, then couldn't due to the Holiday. I take 75 mg XR 3 times per day. I can't think straight and don't want to go back in the hospital. I want to go off all my meds! If they don't kill me I will eventually. Has anyone out there weened their self off on there own or had the same side effects? How do you stop the meds, any of them without having to go through your doctor?
I take a total of 9 diff meds on a daily basis. It's too much to handle.
