Paul describes how a virus led to a prescription for Prozac and other antidepressants. He ended up on Effexor and spent over four years in horrific withdrawal from the drugs, leading to the loss of his career and the disruption of almost every other aspect of his life.

    How do we find out more details about Paul’s WD as well as his status? Great video. Please provide more SSRI WD or adverse reaction stories.

    I’ve dealt with the same thing with these drugs . Effexor was one I suffered withdrawals from. It was also one made me more depressed and suicidal. I continue to slowly slowly withdraw from it not realizing it was the actual medicine that was damaging me. I also feel very very angry that this was something that never needed to happen to me. I feel like my whole life and reality that I had worked so hard for was wiped out and left me so damaged.

    I’m going through this now almost 4 months off Zoloft. I was on 50 mg for about 17 years, and befor this on different ssri’s like celexa. Prozac cymbulta xanax. Just terrible. These drugs effect your whole body when coming off . I still have shakiness muscle spasms and a number of issues. I can’t even get a good nights sleep.But I’m hanging in their, my Doctor is great he said it could take a long time to recover, to hang in their and don’t go back on the drugs , even though your body might be craving them! To everyone going through withdrawals 1 day at a time it’s a long long process, could take months or years, but it’s worth the wait to get off these nasty drugs.
