Weening off Effexor - neck pain!
I was on 300 mg/day of Effexor for approx. 4 years.  Last week, my doctor and I agreed to begin weening me off slowly - 37.5 mg every 3 months.  After just 4 days, I have a crippling neck pain that isn't touched by extra strength, over-the-counter muscle relaxants, heat, or Advil.  Has anyone experienced this? If so, do you have any remedies? I

I dealt with weaning off Effexor too and it was a long drawn out process with lots of weird things going on. Did your Dr cut out 37.5 mgs everyday? That might be too much to fast. Maybe you should talk to him about doing it every few days to see if the neck pain goes away.
