Was on effexor, came off. Have nose bleeds, edema, cheeks swelling and peeling skin. Suggest?
Just wait for a couple of days
Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX
Normally all the side effects should be cleared off within a couple of days. Swellings or edema is not very common while taking effexox (venlafaxine) but if they do occur, I do believe that they should normally clear off within a couple of days after stopping the medication.
You should also have your blood pressure checked and kidney functions too. This is just as an extra measure in case there are other existing problems that might have resulted to these ankle swellings.
See a doctor if there are not changes in the next 7 days.
Hope this helps and wish you the best.
