Jul 5, 2018 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

CBD oil works wonders…doesn't make you high, just calms, and takes pain away!

I just weaned off after 15 years. I went from 150 in 6 months. I went to 125, 112, 100, 75, 50…took it very slowly.

Vertigo is definitely a symptom of withdrawal. Take it slow, it will subside if you are tapering slowly!

Took me 6 full months but I am finally off the demon drug! DO NOT go cold turkey! Even after tapering I had some residual affects like vertigo, nausea, etc. Trying to go cold turkey years ago landed me in the hospital! After 15 years I am Effexor free!!

I’ve been taking Effexor for 14 years, initially prescribed for migraines but my PCP thought there were no reasons to stop it, I had 3 boys in 3 yrs, worked full time, etc. I have inadvertently ran out and had terrible symptoms, nausea, headaches, sweating, chills. At Thanksgiving I mentioned I wanted to wean off it and a friend (psychiatrist) offered to taper me off. It’s been 9 weeks and I just started having terrible vertigo. The only solution will make me sleepy. I am so frustrated and tired, I just want to be off this and feel better! I’m in Cincinnati too for the previous post!
