When withdrawing from a drug like a benzodiazepine, or any highly addictive substance, such as Effexor or any of the antidepressants, the calming and pleasant feelings that it initially provided are now reversed, so the euphoria is now depression. The pain relief is now pain. The calm feeling is now a panic attack, or the dread of one about to occur. It can be life-threatening, in fact, to try and withdraw too quickly from a certain number of drugs. It is never a good idea to cease any benzo or prescribed drug abruptly, as this can overwhelm the various systems in the body and is risky.
It is recommended to always seek medical monitoring when deciding to taper off any meds. It is just too unsafe to try it without medical oversight. Be safe and seek medical help with this. Even under a general practitioner’s care, the symptoms associated with protracted withdrawals can be intolerable. However, one must not despair, because there is a better protracted withdrawal treatment solution available.
