Hi all. Effexor worked well for me but due to symptoms weight and being very sluggish I had decided to get Weened off my 100 something dose in the end of March. Last week was my last pill of 37 and my doctor started me on 10 mg of prozac right after. While on the lowest dose and then prozac my depression and obsessive thoughts were back and I couldn’t handle the 5 days with crying spells and torturing everyone around me . As of 2 days ago I am back starting 75 Effexor again hoping it works and also upset I had to go back on this .
Anyone else similar?

Amanda, it sounds like you were able to take 2 steps forward and then had to take 1 step back. I know this is upsetting, but you're still on track. How are you feeling on 75 mg of Effexor? Might this be the right drug and dosage for you and no need to taper lower?
