I am currently going through some hardcore withdrawls from effexor/venlafaxine. It has been 8 days and I can't stop throwing up, I hear voices and hallucinate, and I feel like I am dying. Besides killing myself, any ideas on how to make the pain stop?

Ive been out of work for 4 months due to debilitating seizures, think this med is causing it. Tried headache meds, pepto, etc...don't have much more money so can't really see Dr and still waiting to hear back from disability dept.

Go to your pharmacy and ask them to give you some to hold you over until you can get a new Rx? Just explain you've been without and most pharmacies will give you atleast a 3 day supply if it's a non-control at no charge. Or if you have an Rx on file and it's an issue with insurance use a discount card. Venlafaxine isn't terribly expensive and if it is at your pharmacy check goodrx to see what pharmacy is cheapest and have them request it to be transferred there.

Did you do cold turkey or did you step down over weeks?

I was originally on 225mg and over the course of three months got off. Each month dropped by 75 mg, (smallest dose downsize) and each time felt sick as balls but got better after a week...this feels like hell.

Effexor is notorious for withdrawal syndrome. Most people I know opted for switching over to Prozac and then scaling down from that. Another alternative is Xanax (benzos) bit the main problem with those is addiction/dependence. I highly doubt you will die from withdrawals but you will feel like whale shit at the bottom of the ocean. Take it from someone who has tried over 10 types of ssris.

St Johns Wort should curb withdrawal and is otc. If you have access to benzos something like Valium can really take the edge off. Ideal would be a cross tolerant Ssri, or anything that causes serotonin reuptake. Something classified as a serotonin agonist should help. Alcohol actually hits the serotonin receptors but isn't a long term solution and would probably make things worse in the long run. I've been on and off of ssris for about 10 years now and have always weened off slowly with the help of benzos.

This to a degree. Try to find Indicas with low levels of thc since that is the main aggravator of anxiety...unless you just want to trip balls.

5 - HTP could also be helpful for otc solutions.

Come on OP, it's not that hard to figure out — you deal with it in the same way as with withdrawal from any other substance: you taper it off gradually.

I was on venlafaxine years ago and tapered it off from 150 mg/day (extended release Effexor) by opening the capsules and dividing the contents roughly into four, then going down to 3/4, 1/2, and 1/4 every half day. I was clear in two weeks without withdrawals.

Note you obviously don't throw out the unused portion but use it for the remaining doses, so you don't waste and use less total capsules.
Do -not- crush the grains — this makes it NOT extended release but instant. You don't want that.

I've also used the tapering of a dose to make sure I can get rid of caffeine dependency. I usually drink two to three coffees a day, and if I suddenly stop, I get a withdrawal headache and feel less alert. So over a two week period I switched first to one coffee and one tea, then just a coffee, then just a tea, and then I was fine without caffeine.

Finally, forget about antidepressants. There's yet another study where they cured depression with magic mushrooms: theguardian.com/science/2016/may/17/magic-mushrooms-lift-severe-depression-in-clinical-trial
