Withdrawl from Effexor XR
April1975 posted:
I have been on Effexor XR for 10 years. I am recently working with my MD to reduce this amount to get off completely. I was taking 225mg per day. I have reduced one third (75mg) 3 weeks ago. I have experienced the worst time. I sleep for hours and hours, feel crappy, have had the runs, stomach pains, strange appetite. Yet, mentally somewhat clearer. I am curious if others have experienced this sleeping issue.

I believe this was posted several times, and you can find my response to one of them here.

Sometimes the board can be a bit confusing and you may not realize the comment has been posted. It happens to me, too, sometimes. But I do love computers despite their shortcomings.
