effexor xr

I am trying to come off my meds (wellbutrin xl 150 and effexor xr 75) as I would like to become pregnant this year. All my Dr.s say I need to come off the meds. My DR. has me taking my wellbutrin 150 mg once every 3 days and had me take 1  37.5 mg of the effexor for 5 days and no more effexor just wellbutrin. I am feeling tired, nausea and headaches I asume due to no effexor. Should I have been prescribed the effexor diffrently?

effexor was the worst thing that ever happened to me. i was just on effexor and the whole thing was awful but when i stopped taking it nothing got better. i was sleeping 14 hours a day, and the withdrawal made me feel like there were bugs crawling all over my body for months. going ON wellbutrin was the only thing that made it go away.

If I were you, I would withdraw one medicine at a time. I have yet to try Effexor but I have read from most that the withdrawals are worse than those of Paxil (which I have gone through several times). If really do feel bad, have your doctor prescribe you a slower taper. His/her taper seems pretty quick, especially for Effexor. Perhaps switching to Prozac first would help. Best of luck.

I was on lexapro for nearly 2 years continually upping my dose to no avail. 6 months ago I started effexor xr and have slowly risen to 150 mg. I know I need to go higher, but I am actually wanting to do things around the house. Couldnt have cared less about cleaning etc before. Its only tiny steps for me but I feel the want to now. However I can only sleep 2 hours a night and it kills me..... ?
