exactly, she told me go back to your PCP or ENT… whaaat?
and yes, it really gets you down… I am trying to get out of it the best I can. Thank you @Onandon03
@nin I am already at 75 mg, I have been there for 12+ weeks, mainly because I had an anxiety attack, and it is helping me with that too. I think I will go up to 112.5, I am already discussing with my neuro. I asked Dr. Hain directly yesterday about his thoughts and he replied! He suggested to give up effexor since I have given a decent trial, BUT after thinking about it last night, I need to also think on my mental health, since my anxiety/depression were terrible before effexor, so I think I will stay on it and increase it. I know Dr. Hain is more conservative, but other neurologists are ok going up on effexor. In other MAV support groups I read several people got relief at 150 or even higher. So I guess this is an example of precision medicine, given all the circumstances, I need not to be afraid of increasing the meds, particularly since I did not have any side effects to begin with (as opposed to zoloft that sent me to the hospital).
I am going to trust my neuro, but not run to ENT to check my ears, I know there is nothing wrong there.
@turnitaround am about to go my dentist for my night guard, sorry, I know what you think about tmj, but I am grinding my teeth terribly!
