About Me: Female, 72, Dorset, United Kingdom, member since Nov 2009
I am a grandma who lives in the beautiful seaside county of Dorset on the south coast of England. I have two children, four grandchildren, and a lovely rescue tom cat I have called Smudge. With my doctor's help I have gradually withdrawn from 150mg Effexor XR daily ov
[More]er 10 months. I finally stopped taking the medication in October 2013. I have had no withdrawal symptoms and feel really well.
I am 72 years old and have a reasonable social life with a senior citizens group. I do not take any medication at all, and I think I am doing really wello for my age. Apart from the usual things that catch up with us as we age, I am really fit.
