Please speak to a psychiatrist if u need too, I attend my psychiatrist once a year since I started taking Effexor 13 years ago. I had to take 225mg starting with 75mg 4 weeks later 150mg and 4 weeks later 225mg.
Reducing down was done by reducing the mg very slowly until u reach 10 or 5mg. I don’t know how low the mg’s go to but stay on the lowest dose for at least two months. if u are not having bad side effects on the low dose, miss one day first week then two days second week and so on. If you are on 300mg you should come down over eight to 12 months, I am not a doctor but I am explaining to u the way I was managed by a mature psychiatrist slowly slowly reduce. (Also May I suggest u look up the web And ask how to reduce the mg while taking Effexor) hope this helps.
