My wife is currently on effexor XR, she's been on it for around 2 years or longer. Can someone tell me if they ever got off of it and how they got it done. I remember when she first started taking it, one of her sx's was the strange dreams. She tried to get off cold turkey and she started having even stranger dreams, she couldn't get off. Is it a taper very slowly approach? She has gone down to 37.5 mgs. a day from 75 mgs., so now she wants to move onward and out. I know someone had brought this subject up before. Thanks for looking.
