Been on Venlafaxine for 3 years. Only reason I haven’t come of is because of the withdrawal horror stories I read.

Missed a dose 4 days ago and decided to just do cold turkey.

Obviously I’m really in the throes of withdrawal - mainly jolts, tinnitus and tiredness as well as irritability and sleep issues.

I’m in the UK where NHS doctors are not in the habit of prescribing diazepam and are much more likely to try to encourage me to taper off but after 4 days I don’t really want to do that.

Has anyone ever asked a UK doctor for any short term aids?
