I have a very long story. Currently i am taking effexor xr anti depressant. I am a 21 year old male who was a typical smoker. I have recently stopped while taking effexor due to some bad experiences i had while combining the two.

It started out one night over my friends house where we usually hang out and smoke and have a good time. This night i had increased my dosage of effexor as prescribed from 75mg to 150mg. I smoked marijuana that night just like many other nights prior to this one. After smoking more and more i began to feel very different. My mind eventually started to scramble and nothing would make sense to me. I was unable to interpret anything people were saying around me and it made me very confused and scared like i was trapped in a dream. First thing i remember is having an out of body experience. I felt like my mind had left my body and i was sitting on the couch trying to fight myself to come back into my body. My friends say i was spinning in circles at this stage. I was head-butting my friends cousin who was sitting on the couch next to me. My friend yells, " quit headbutting my cousin before i punch you!" I was not aware of this as i was out of conciousness. I headbutted her yet again and she got up off of the couch very scared. My friend decided thought i was just being a dickhead to his cousin so he slammed me into the couch. He told me i had no resistance to him shoving me into the couch and knew something was not right. At this point i was coming in and out of consciousness not knowing exactly what was going on around me.
