I am so thankful to all of you who have added to this post. I am also in the process of weaning of effexor xr 150mg. I started cutting back to having one 150mg capsule every second day 10 days ago, I was waiting to get paid and so today is my third day without one. I am about to go get 75mg script filled. I have been clenching my teeth, I keep forgetting things mid sentence, I am irritable, angry, no sex drive, want to sleep all the time but dream crazy dreams every night. I have dizziness, headaches, fuzzy feeling in my forhead and lips, I also feel faint and have this disgusting taste in my mouth and throat. I have acne for the first time in my life. I am eating too much, and sugar cravings are ridiculous. I can not wait to get off this drug. I lack support because my husband disagrees with it, I have two kids and this week I have been yelling like a crazy woman, I feel so sad for them, i don't want them to remember this week. I am praying that I will have a 'normal' life once off this drug. Praying for all of you who are also in this place.
