Withdrawal Symptoms
I have been on Efexor XR for 4 years tritating between 75 & 150mg, I was started on Efexor to help me deal with grief.

I have decided to cease this as a situation I found myself in recently made me realise just how much mentally this medication was supressing, (yes it helped me wonderfully during a time of horrible emotional turmoil with no support) cause I didn't have to think about anything, I just popped this little pill and went to my happy place. I now have a wonderful husband who IS there for me emotionally and wants me to talk about things with him and not shut my feelings & emotions away.

I have gone from every day to every second day) it is now 6 days since I have had any Efexor and the main side effect I have is really bad dizziness, how long can these side effects last for?
