  • Mood:


I'm beginning to wonder whether some of it is due to the venlafaxine taper. The odd thing is that I'm not getting any of what people have described as the primary effect of too abrupt a taper: really bad headaches. But I am getting some odd physical - or what at least seem to be physical - effects:

1) Disjointed sleep, with bursts of very long sleep in between
2) A feeling that my movements are undercompensated; hard to describe, but some of the time my body seems to move by itself, or overdoes a movement, sometimes with what feel like echoes of the movement afterwards
3) Failure of my internal gyroscope - moving my head makes the world swoop and whirl, and I'm tending to trip and stumble.

Very odd. So I think I'm going to decrease the tapering angle and see if that makes a difference.
