Cold turkey is difficult. I did stop Effexor like that once, and the withdrawals were bad for a couple of weeks. I took 10 months to withdraw the next time, as I had to go back on to Effexor because my depression returned. I had no withdrawals at all that time. 9 months later I do not have depression, but anxiety is coming back. The advice on Effexor...

I have the jitters daily, and am not on any medication. It is a symptom of my anxiety. I know some medications can do this, but in my case it is just one of those things, and I am glad not to be on medication. I have been in the past, and was anxiety free, but wanted to stop taking prescribed medication. I have tried some herbal remedies, with a little ...

I was on capsules for higher doses, but here in UK the dosage at 37.5mg and under is in pill form and is generic, and although I did not like what generic did to me before, I had no choice. As it was I did all right on the generic this time. So that is why I was able to cut the pills. I have read of people opening the capsules, but that is a bit more diffi...

Well done. It took me 10 months to withdraw from 150mg Effexor. That was 9 months ago. As I did it very slowly I had no withdrawal symptoms. I think you are wise to stay on 37.5mg for a few months. This will ease the withdrawals. They will gradually lessen, and perhaps you could do what I did. I bought a pill cutter and cut up the tablets, taking sma...

I have been on this site for 5 years, and believe me there are so truly helpful and understanding people. I have made "friends" although we will never meet each other. I have found like minded people, who care. Depression can be a very isolating illness. Keep posting here, and yes you will find other people who feel like you. Most of us ofte...

You don't say what it is that is making you feel this way, but believe me you are not alone. Life itself is one big obstacle course that we have to get through somehow. Don't feel alone. You have friends who will listen here. Depression is one long fight, and I have battled it for many years, and then another illness pops up, but we have to ...

We here on this site are always here for each other, to support and sympathise. We all need to get things out of our system, and here we find people who understand us. I know how sometimes things get difficult for you with your niece. Keep posting here, and try and let what she says to hurt you, pass you by. Try not to dwell on it. Like I have said b...

Oh I am so sorry and I wish I could help you. How old is your dear little baby? Have you been diagnosed with post natal depression? Have you seen a doctor and discussed how you feel? Depression does take away so much, but there is help out there for you.
