I’ve been taking 375mg of effexor for quite a few years. But because effexor causes deformitys in babies Ive been advised I must come off the medication. I’ve been working with my psychiatrist to come off. I was taking 75mg last week and I was fine. But I moved down to two dosages of 37.5 MG twice a day and it’s kicking my butt. I’m getting depressed and I almost started crying at work yesterday. This is very difficult. Not to mention I’ve stopped vaping weed, stopped energy shots and limited my caffeine usage. Every crutch I have is being taken away. Im struggling and not to mention having a belly that is constantly stretching and throwing up once a day doesn’t nessarily help. I never thought being pregnant would be so difficult and exhausting.
Has anyone else out there had to come off their antidepressants due to pregnancy?? How did you cope??? I’m trying so hard. But I’m so afraid. I struggle with so many disorders and depression has been one of the leading ones.
Any advise would be loved.
