Hello everyone. I'm currently on Effexor for the past 2-3 months now. I periodically stop taking them for a couple of days at a time. Last night was my 2nd night not taking them and I had just had a fight with my boyfriend, we got over it and went to sleep.
About 20mins later, I start gasping for air while i'm sleeping, my body got hot, and it started tingling all over. I felt as if I moved my body and was trying to wake him up to help me, but i couldn't breadthe, or move for that matter. It's like I was hallucinating and having a panic attack while i was sleeping.
I've had somewhat mild panic attacks before but never felt like this. Does this sound normal, should I talk to my doc, has anyone else experienced anything similar?
