effexor weaning and leg pain

I was back on Effexor for about a month after weaning off it - only taking 25 mg.  The muscle pain and cramps in my legs started after about 3 weeks, so I stopped taking the effexor - it has been 10 days - 2 weeks and legs are still bothering me.  Any experience with similar situation?

Leg cramps like that seem to take a while to go away, but you have to make sure that they are from the Effexor, and  if they are in both legs, they probably are..but if in one leg, you should be examined.

Taking extra magnesium citrate can help with this particular side effect.
