    How does one come off their anti depressants (Effexor 300mg daily) for fibromyalgia after 30 years? I have TMS no doubt about it. Im reading Dr Sarno's book Healing Back Pain & realise why Ive been sick for a very long time.
    I take mobic (anti-inflam) twice a day, Lyrica twice a day for nerve pain & a range of supplements for extra immune support.
    Ive stopped taking the mobic & have begun weaning off Lyrica taking just one in the morning. There is nothing wrong with my body, to hell with all the anguish anxiety & despair Ive been in since a child! Im going so well & wish to continue this way, its a phenomena that I cant get over how long it took me to find out about TMS, Im so happy.
    However, I dont like the fact Im on anti depressants & am afraid to start weaning due to the ill effects it will have on my mind what with how
    the brain tries to compensate for the blockage of the serotonin and dopamine receptors by growing additional receptors for these neurotransmitters. When the medications are discontinued, these additional receptors contribute to an 'overload' of serotonin and dopamine flooding the receptor. This is known as 'super-sensitivity psychosis' and 'antidepressant discontinuation syndrome'."
    I digress,
    "BEMIDJI, MINN. -- Jeffrey Weise had ‘a good relationship' with the grandfather he shot and killed on Monday as prelude to his deadly assault on students and others at Red Lake High School, according to relatives who are struggling to understand what might have pushed the teenager from sometimes bizarre behaviour to mass murder and suicide. . . . They wondered, too, about medication he was supposedly taking for depression, and a recent increase in his prescribed dosage. . . . 60 milligrams a day of Prozac." --Star Tribune (Minnesota), March 24, 2005.
    Consistent with the "zombie effect" noted above, many sources indicate that some perpetrators who survive their crime scenes report being in a dreamlike state in which they feel they are watching their actions but not in control of them. Some of the literature notes sleep disorders, and speculates that the drugs induce a state of waking dream in which one becomes a passive witness to one's actions. (Christopher Pittman, who killed his grandparents and set fire to their house told his father afterward that it had been like watching a TV show.) Other sources say the shooters do not remember their crimes or do not associate themselves with what occurred.

    So, my question is, how will I go about doing this? As you can see from above, Ive read some horrific stories about coming off A/Dep's to the point of extreme violence, even murder & suicide! If I could find somebody who can help me through the transition of weaning of Effexor, step by step to get to the 'other side' of being totally free from pain & drugs & TMS , Id be ever so grateful. Thank you for reading.

    Yours Sincerely
