The controversial antidepressant medication Effexor is widely known at this point as much for its side effects as it is for combatting depression. Some of the side effects include mood swings, aggressive behavior, suicidal thoughts and even suicide. These side effects have many people trying to stop taking the drug, but even that has a side effect associated with it.
Quitting Effexor causes withdrawal symptoms that can be quite debilitating and almost as dangerous as staying on the medication. The reason for this is due to the body’s dependency on it. The drug is highly addictive and many patients don’t successfully come off of it permanently without some help. Now Point of No Return has instituted a program that is meant to help Effexor patients stop taking the drug, while still being at home.
Most drug programs that help people quit a drug or medication are conducted on-site so that doctors can keep a watchful eye on the effects the drug (and lack thereof) is having on the patients. Point of No Return claims to be able to provide patients with a safe-at-home way to quit the drug permanently. All you have to do is visit its website and purchase the program that is associated with the type of drug that you are trying to get off of.
According to information provided about the Point of No Return program, “the primary Effexor withdrawal symptoms include nervousness, dizziness, headache, nausea and insomnia. Withdrawal may also affect the body’s central nervous system including the brain and spinal cord. At Point of No Return, they believe that the natural symphony of chemicals within an individual’s body is injured by sustained intake of medications so they utilize naturally-occurring nutraceuticals and whole food supplements that form an integral part of every program to ease the protracted Effexor withdrawal symptoms.”
The sad part is that Effexor has caused so much damage that patients feel like they have to go to a sort of “rehab” program to avoid suffering from the side effects of quitting the drug. Patients just can’t catch a break.
