Long short story, ten years ago i started having spasmophilia, it is basically, panic attacks with hyperventilation.

Everyday, without rest, so doctor put me onEffexor 75mg. I could never stop since then.

Got bit better with time, but i crashed again after taking finasteride.

Always high CO2
High progesterone
Normal thyroid
Low Testosterone, low SHBG, low E2
No lyme
High cortisol, high acth

I'm despaired, because i want to stop that shitty drug, but cannot live correctly without
