Jun 13, 2018 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

Thanks for the encouragement, tennessegirl. My doctor just put me on a small dose of citalopram to help with brain zaps and some of my withdrawal symptoms. Never considered that getting off a drug would be so hard.

Hang in there Amelia. Rereading your post reminded me that my doctor had me go from 150 ( my highest level) to 112.5 before going to 75. Then to 37.5. Then every other day. The entire process was five weeks.

I also had some moments when I wanted to jump out of my skin. Feeling electric zaps through my body.

On some days I feel great but mostly it is hard. Although getting better.

Good luck

I just found these posts. Much of what I am reading fits my situation. Headaches, flu-like symptoms, up and down feelings, fatigue Have been off Effexor for three weeks now after having been on it for a year and half. Followed a gradual withdrawal from the drug. Wasn’t aware that I would feel all of the feelings, etc that I am. Feeling lots of anger that seems to have been stored up. Struggling at times but trying to hang in there. Just retired and trying to stay active. Morning is the worst. This input from others is helpful
