Hi i have an anxiety disorder which has plagued me for about 4 years. I suffer with panic attacks and irrational fear of everyday things, driving etc.
I was on effexor and reduced my dosage over time to the lowest dose, 37.5 mg.
Thing is i dont want to take them anymore and want to face my demons myself and maybe with the help of more CBT. I tried to stop taking them but am suffering with severe brain zaps, dizziness, My eyes wont even focus and im seeing double. I went to the doctor and he said its because im not ready to come off it, thing is, I know deep down these are just nasty withdrawel effects, So he gave me prozac to ease the withdrawels, but am i not prolonging this whole thing by taking prozac??, will i have withdrawels from this when i finish the months course he prescribed me??? Any advise welcome
