Well, my doctor came through for me and called in a new Effexor prescription for me and I picked it up yesterday. A little perturbed though because there are NO refills........wth?? and she did not call in the Naproxin ( anti-inflammatory) med for my pinched nerve ( possible sciatic nerve ). I guess 'they' want that darned $10 co-pay just to hand me a script, because she won't be doing anything else, I was just there 3 weeks ago. I'm going to call again tomorrow and leave a message on her voice mail. My Effexor will take a while to 'kick in' so I can't promise I won't flip out. I hate voice mails.
And then since taking the Effexor all over again, I've been getting severe sweats. It's driving me crazy. I'd forgotten that it's a side effect of the med. I will probably be sleeping on the couch tonight with the rotating fan on full blast again. If I weren't afraid of falling off and drowning, I'd sleep on the raft in the pool.
