My Horrible Nightmares – Recorded Live – Effexor Medication Withdrawal & Brain Zaps

Info on not taking Venafaxine and the possible adverse side effects

Venlafaxine is a widely used serotonin- and norepinephrine-reuptake inhibitor-type antidepressant that causes serious adverse effects in at least 5% of cases. Serious withdrawal symptoms may occur within hours of cessation or reduction of the usual dosage and may affect motor and coordination skills to such a degree that patients should be explicitly urged either to adhere to a strict medication routine or not to drive a car. Recent clinical evidence about withdrawal symptoms is presented that may indicate incidents in noradrenergic activity irrespective of dosage.

Serotonin, Noradrenaline Withdrawal

Venlafaxine hydrochloride (Effexor, Dobupal) is a phenylethylamine-derivative antidepressant and anxiolytic agent that acts as a serotonin- and noradrenaline-reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). It is used primarily in major depressive disorder, with labeled uses including generalized anxiety disorder and social phobia. Nonlabeled uses include depressive symptom remission, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and chronic pain syndromes.

Most selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) and SSNRIs are reported to cause serious adverse effects in approximately 5% of patients, according to its manufacturer.[1] Venlafaxine is no exception. Among the adverse effects are a number of withdrawal symptoms that form “discontinuance syndromes,” sometimes mistakenly identified with what Sternbach in 1991 proposed as the “serotonin syndrome”.[2] Venlafaxine’s half-life is only 4 hours. Its primary metabolite, O-desmethylvenlafaxine, has a half-life of 10 hours. In the past 10 years, a number of clinical reports of severe venlafaxine withdrawal symptoms have been published, and for the most part these effects are duly reflected in generally available information. Widely consulted drug information services, such as Medscape DrugInfo, American Hospital Formulary Service Drug Information, and First DataBank, list the following withdrawal symptoms as “serious”: agitation, anorexia, anxiety, confusion, impaired coordination, diarrhea, dizziness, dry mouth, dysphoric mood, fasciculation, fatigue, headaches, hypomania, insomnia, nausea, nervousness, nightmares, sensory disturbances (including shock-like electrical sensations), somnolence, sweating, tremor, vertigo, and vomiting.

Recent Case Histories: Withdrawal Effects Are Not Dose-Dependent

Case 1: Standard Dose. Female, white, age 35, no other pathologies, diagnosed for major depressive disorder with anger attacks. Treated with extended-release venlafaxine 150 mg for 4 months with concurrent psychotherapy, with positive results: Beck’s Depression Inventory score reduced from 38 to 14; functionality restored.

The patient ran out of medication on a Thursday and could not get in touch with her doctor until the next Monday. On Friday, only 12 hours after the usual time of taking the medication, she felt a noticeable change in mood, dizziness, and nausea. She experienced a sensation in her head as if electrical discharges “popped” and could not concentrate to the extent that she was unable to drive her car back from where she had gone. By Friday evening (18 hours after cessation), the “popping” in her head had become worse and she vomited after dinner. Depression symptoms reappeared acutely, and she could not stop crying. At first, she did not equate these symptoms to the missed dose of venlafaxine, but thought she might have contracted the flu. However, the symptoms continued and intensified over the weekend and only reduced when, on Monday, she started again on venlafaxine. She was inadvertently given the lower dose of 75 mg, which did not quite restore her mood to the previous level, although the “electrical popping” sensation in her head stopped and the nausea was reduced.

My Teen School Years, 1980’s, Sadistic Teachers & Bullying – My Self Harming – The End Consequences

My Teen School Years, 1980’s, Sadistic Teachers & Bullying – My Self Harming – The End Consequences

So I am 45 years old now, and I am building the courage to personally share this life changing story with all my subscribers…. it is very personal, but this is my life and I want people to remember me for who I am, and to help myself heal from past experiences I have experienced in a very traumatic way and on how the Bullying Children will have a huge impact of not just their own life, but their families lives and even their friends lives, and relationships they may have.

I am just trying to heal and to become wiser and a better person in this split second of a thing we call Life.

Here is another story on the same period of my life… I may upload another video on this same episode, but in that video, I am driving through beautiful countrysides, I show my anger, my pain, and I cry at the hurt on what those teachers did to me on a mental factor.

and here

Read the complete story here along with some great videos

Or feel free to scroll down, read, pause, unpause, pause etc

What I write in the below is how easily a persons life can be destroyed by Bullying and Abuse … Not Sexual Abuse… just simple physical humiliating bullying, verbal and physical abuse, and how any form of bullying will and does affect the victim for the rest of their lives.

None of the below is related to my service in the Australian Defence Force, however I am a Department of Veterans Affair Veteran who does receive a Military Pension for my service in the Australian Army and the Royal Australian Navy.

It is really hard for me to write this, but now aged 43 years of age, I must do this as part of my personal healing journey, I must release this anger, the guilt, the hatred for what certain people inflicted upon myself in my teenage years, mainly being the only boy in class with eight girls in a tiny rural country town called Dambeling, the town I still reside in and still call home …. as much as I hate the place on the odd occasion, however, this town is the town where I had a wonderful life, a wonderful childhood and the memories of a childhood that any kid for wish for.

However when I turned 13, all of that changed for my, my happy childhood became a somewhat miserable and lonely teenage life.

Case 2: High Dose. (Provided by J. Garcia Campayo, MD, PhD, Dept of Psychiatry, Miguel Servet Hospital, University of Zaragoza, Spain)

Female, white, age 43, first diagnosis of major depressive disorder of moderate intensity; maternal history of depressive disorder. Successfully treated with 225 mg of venlafaxine (75-75-75) for 12 months with no adverse effects. The patient decided she could do without the medication and stopped taking it abruptly. Withdrawal effects appeared within a day and included headaches, dizziness, and instability, with a sense of losing balance (although she did not actually fall down), sense of sparks and electrical discharges in her head, and intense anxiety. When treatment at the original level was reinstated and progressively reduced over a period of 2 weeks, the symptoms disappeared.

Aussie Redneck has a “Cyclothymia?” Hypomanic Episode in Front of Oncoming Freight Train

Aussie Redneck has a “Cyclothymia?” Hypomanic Episode in Front of Oncoming Freight Train

Description One:
This is real, and what usually happens to me after I go well for a few weeks, then I crash and burn… too much adrenalin, no doubt to much sugar, coffee and trying to do too much at once and overworking myself, scrapping, metal detecting, digging and much more!

Huge bursts of energy, for a few weeks, do a few silly things, like climbing up big trees to film Wedge Tail Eagles, Swallowing Silver Coins to see what my guts will do to them (clean them)

I also admit that when I went on that Meteorite Hunt and I stated i was finding Meteorites, that I could have been Manic…. however I definitely found two Meteorites, and the excitement of finding them just pushed me to the limits of going a bit too far during that period a year of so ago…. when I look back on this, it was an amazing experience, it was also hilarious. because I was 100% certain I was finding Meteorites and I was quite devastated when I was told by the WA Museum that that were just normal rocks LMFAO!

A Month of Metal Detecting Finds, Relic Hunting, Bottle Digging, Picking & Scrapping – Part 2

This is from a series of videos I am doing on my Metal Detecting, Relic and Antique Bottle Hunting and Digging and also My scrap metal collecting which I do to survive to put food on my table, to pay my bills and to hopefully use one day to save my house from the evil clutches of Bank Reposession …  this video also contains clips of my collecting and saving precious items from being destroyed, crushed and destroyed by the Evil Dumbleyung Shire Council

More about the evil Shire of Dumbleyung coming soon … but see the very below video about the Nippering and Dumbleyung Cemetary.

Part 1 and Part 2 below of A Month of Metal Detecting Finds

 

Now why are the Shire of Dumbleyung Councillors  a bunch of Evil, Uncaring and a bunch of wankers you may ask?

See this video on me at the Dumbleyung Cemetary and you’ll see what the Shire of Dumbleyung are a bunch of assholes.

In the next few days I will be uploading a video about my efforts to get the Dumbleyung  Cremation Ashes Wall fixed, how the Shire of Dumbleyung ignores my plea’s and how and why the Shire of Dumbleyung treat me like a piece of shit because I am a whistle blower and a complainer all for the sake of the love of my Father and for the safety of the people of Dumbleyung and the Shire of Dumbleyung / Kukerin’s Council Workers.

 

People please feel free to offer a complaint to the CEO of the Shire of Dumbleyung to ceo@dumbleyung.wa.gov.au in regards to the Dumbleyung aka Nippering Nieche Cremation Wall getting fixed

Over the last two years I have wrote numerous letters the the Shire of Dumbleyung and its town Councillors to resolve this issue and to get the Cremation Wall fixed… yet they simply ignore my emails.

Now… if a family of a Dumbleyung Pioneering Farming family had the same issue … it would be fixed immediately.
