I have been weaning off 150 mg of Effexor, halving the dose every 30 days. Since getting to 37.5 mg, I have been experiencing pain in my knees, such as when bending or standing from a sitting position they feels as if they are going to snap. I am 45 and have never had any arthritic, joint or knee problems. Has anyone ever experienced something similar when weaning off this medication? I am looking forward to the day when I will be Effexor free.

I haven't heard of this side effect and I would suggest that you bring it to your prescriber's attention.#next_pages_container { width: 5px; hight: 5px; position: absolute; top: -100px; left: -100px; z-index: 2147483647 !important; }
