Went to the hospital after taking my second dose of my Effexor . scared cause my blood pressure has been high . I never in my life had such a horrid one like this to the point I thought I was having a stroke. my hands started to lock up and my lungs felt like they where gonna cave in ..my feet stayed to point outwards😖 it was the most scariest thing ever ... I eventually recovered the paramedics was great! they gave me oxygen and talk to me until it went away . Have any of u been through the same thing?
