Back on Effexor XR

As the withdrawal symptoms from the Effexor XR landed me in the ER last night, Dr. Awesome and I have decided that I need to get back on it.  It’s kind of risky because it is a Class C medication (meaning that it *might* cause birth defects, more specifically a congenital heart defect) but for me, the benefits of staying on it while pregnant outweigh the risks to me and thus to the sea monkey.  I have to go see her later this week to figure out how to reconcile my need to be on it with the pregnancy.

On the other hand, my sugars are absolutely beautiful and Dr. Awesome is happy with those.
