effexor xr

I have been on effexor xr for about a year, no side effects, am taking 150mg. I recently have seen
many articles on the withdrawl symptons of this drug & they are very upsetting.  Does everyone
have the same reaction & I wonder why I was not informed of this when I was prescribed this drug.

Thank you.

I took effexor for 4 years before switching over to prozac.  The only problem I had coming off of it was dizzy spells for a few weeks.  It may have helped me that I was starting the prozac at the same time though.

best wishes,
