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.
