yes, these are all the symptoms i had when going off effexor. it could take awhile for these symptoms to go away. but all people are different and you might get over them more quickly than i did. hang in there, they will go away. when do you stop the 37.5mg? you don't want to do it to quickly. take care. remar
i did 37,5mg for a whole month. My MD said it was enough. The only thing no one told me was that this seems to be the hardest withdrawal concerning anti depressives. i understand that everyone respond diferently to withdrawal still one needs some references.. how long is a while? 2 weeks? 2 months? how long does the worst phase take? thanks
Are you swapping Effexor for another medication or are you going off all AD medication?
I see. Yea, even with a slow taper Effexor can be a real bear to stop.
I was able to transition from Effexor to another AD medication, but stopping all together is really tough. It may take several weeks before the withdrawl symptoms fade.
someone tolf me yhe first two weeks are the most difficult, and some take a whole year to return to normal.
Why is this drug still prescribed? i agree this drug help me a lot, but the hangover is terrible. i even tought on going back to effexor. that´s why so many people don't leave AD medications. I'm gonna a make it. despite the withdrawal symptoms I'm incredibly confidant and i'm leaving AD forever.
