Regarding withdrawal from effexsor[br>
I am so happy to read other comments.  I have been on anti-depressants for about 25 years and effexsor probably the last 20 years.  I started with 225 mg. and went down gradually to 75 mgs which I have been on for about 2 years.  [br>
I wanted to go off because I am in a better place so with my psychiatrist this is how I did it.  I took 37.5 mg. for about a month, then cut those in 1/2 and took 1/2 for about two weeks and then took the 1/2 pills every other day for two weeks.[br>
I have been completely off for about 1 week or more and I still have some nausea, some anxiety and fear at times and I am going in to see my primary doc today to talk about it.  That is one powerful drug and I don't want it to control me but I hope and pray I can get feeling better soon.
