I was wondering something my doctor was wanting me to get off of Effexor Xr 112mg and switch to Viibryd, I have been on Effexor for about 7 years, the reason for the switch is my weight gain. But I was just wondering if the process is safe, he said to start taking effexor 75mg in the mourning and then Viibryd small dose at night for a week then switch to effexor 37.5 and up a does a Viibryd for a week then after the week stop taking Effexor is this safe and what are the side effects from it.
