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

Hi Lisa, I had genetic testing because I have fought for 15 years with anxiety and depression. I wanted off of Benzo's and was going to try SSRI's but my doctor and I have decided not to. I am extremely sensitive to all meds so I'm tapering off my Serax at 10% a month and using CBD to help me. My Psychiatrist is working with me through the tapering and my CBD's. I am looking for positive stories and am staying clear of doom and gloom. I had hit tolerance about 3-4 months prior to starting my taper so I've been fighting hard for a while now.

Have you tried CBD oil yet and if you have how are you doing on it? I have purchased it and will start on it tomorrow. I am tapering off a Benzo (Serax). I am tapering low and slow and am under the guidance of my Psychiatrist who also is with me on trying the CBD.

I'm not coming off effexor but am tapering a Benzo right now and it's tough but doable. I'm a fighter and will be a winner. I saw my Psychiatrist today after she received the results of my genetic testing. My body is not tolerate of anything but Pristiq. Both she and I decided I'm going to continue my 6 month taper off my Benzo and call it done…..No more pills. I am however with her approval going to try CBD oil to aid me in my withdrawls. You can do this. Jump in and get your life back. One day at a time, low and slow in the taper. You deserve to be free and happy. There are a lot of us out here tapering and supporting…My Very Best

Are you tapering off effexor? I'm tapering off a Benzo using liquid tapering. There is no easy way but little by little and slow. I hope someone going off effexor will be able to help you. I'm working with my Physician to taper and am also going to use CBD oil to help me. My Best To You

Did you come off Benzo's? Any advice of easing the withdrawals besides tapering off slowly?

I'm not sure you received my first reply. I would never do anything without first talking to my Psychiatrist. I had a genetic swab done last week and have my Psychiatrist appt on May 4th. I'm in tolerence so I"m struggling but I'm a fighter. I'm hoping to go off my Oxazepam by tapering under her care and using CBD oil to help me.
