I just needed a bit of support and advice if anyone has it?
A bit of an odd one. I've been on medication called Venlafaxine for 16 years (since I was 14) and I've been coming down on it since October 2015 from 300mg to nothing (since Monday). I'm 15 weeks pregnant and to be honest we got pregnant a bit quicker than we expected being surrounded by several friends and family struggling to conceive, so during pregnancy I've come down from 75mg to 37.5mg and now to nothing.
Each time I come down I have quite severe withdrawal and have decided to deal with this before baby comes as I'd be devastated if they had to suffer this withdrawal themselves when they're born however since I dropped to nothing on Monday I have felt so very ill. I have a very bad stomach, pins and needles in my face and fingers and what people who have had this problem will understand, tremors when I look around or get up.
I'm just worrying a bit about baby and the fact that I had two days off sick at work and had to leave at lunch today as I felt so ill. I know baby will be better without me taking this medicine but I'm paranoid I'll have a miscarriage feeling so ill.
Is baby stronger than I give them credit for? I'd really appreciate some support and or advice?
