My PCP prescribed me venlafaxine today. I have been having headaches (different types and all over my head, but mostly sharp pains in the frontal/temple area). I had an MRI everything looked normal which is great. I've also been having nausea, stomach pains, no appetite, neck pains and ear pains. I've had a physical and blood work. I will be having an ultrasound on my neck (left thyroid). Since it seems to be nothing bad she put me on 37.5mg of venlafaxine and I'm really nervous because I've read other people's reactions. It seems to help overall but I'm not trying to be on this forever and I don't want to deal with the awful sounding withdrawal symptoms. Any advice?
I've taken my first one with dinner and I feel more anxious than usual and nauseas.
