    Dangerous benzodiazepine withdrawals- that I was not told I shouldn’t be driving while having. They caused two car accidents. Also I could have died 🤦🤷

    I just realized this was for the wrong drug lol. But I have a bad side effect for this one as well lol. It made me so angry I thought I might act out and hurt someone- like I for real felt like the hulk, and called my dr asking if I should still take it- he’s like, “nope, that’s not normal, you don’t need that anymore”

    Be careful asking for "worst side effects" because they're not as common as they sound when you're doing the confirmation bias thing. Effexor saved my life for several years and I'm about to go back on it because it helped so much. But yeah, if you miss a dose, you'll get brain "zap" feelings for sure

    Horrible withdrawal symptoms. Brain zaps, dizziness, slurred speech. I have been on it for 10 years and would be afraid to go off of it for fear of these symptoms.

    And slurred speech, confusion, dizziness.. it's worked so well as an antidepressant but the withdrawal is terrible.
