    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I am on my first day of a lower does of effexor xr. I have taken 150 mg for about two years now and decided I want to see if I can do life without an antidepressant. I am now on 75 mg of effexor xr and am wanting to know what to expect I have heard its a hard road but worth it in the end. What are the withdrawl symptoms and what is the best way to get through this.
