I’ve taken Effexor XR for over 25 years and only recently my sleep apnea doc suggested I stop or reduce the amount (300 mg once/day). Why should I do this. Doc wasn’t clear about why. I’m doing ok on the 300mg. My shrink prescribed it over 25 years ago for long time PTSD, which I still have, although I haven’t seen the shrink in over 20 years. Any info anyone has will be appreciated. Thank you.

Over 300 mg a day was a pretty high dose. Besides it didn’t help you this whole time? I know I’m bringing up Prozac again but that and Zoloft are specific to ptsd. I managed by mine on just 10 mg a day of Prozac. So low because I am super sensitive to meds and I have just recently stopped to see how I do without meds
