Hello I am on 37.5 mg of Effexor XR. I started weaning off a few weeks ago. One every other night, then two days off one day on for a little under a week. I have just been offered a new job that needs me to work nights and I have to work the same days at my current job till I can quit in Feb, so decided for the sake of my sanity to go back on Effexor. Problem is, I started taking the pills again 2 days ago full time (one a day) and I am having panic attacks and crying all the time. I feel like my world is crumbling. I am too upset to eat - I am dreading this new job that I was really looking forward to before. Are my symptoms normal? Will it go away in a few days of continuing back on this meds? Any insights/help would be great.View Thread
