Last July I decided to stop venlafaxine 75mg cold turkey, at the time I wasnt doing very well and decided I needed to do something about it. For the first 2 months of withdrawal it was the usual head rushes brain zaps etc. The last 2 months I have become extremely paranoid especially in my marriage of 14 years. I wanted to ask if anyone else has had this experience?

I was on Venlafaxine but switched off it onto a new med so didn't get withdrawal. I wonder if the panaroia is linked to it at all. It could be the old problems resurfacing in a new way. Why did you come off it like that?
