Jun 12, 2018 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

Well, I took only 75mg today and tonight I feel ok. So, I think I will try just taking 75mg again tomorrow and see how it goes.

@amelia42 I thought they didn't a 100mg pill. I'm trying to go from 150 to 75 now. I've been switching them back and forth per my dr for about 2 weeks now. Thinking of trying to just go to 75 but I'm scared.

@anxiouslisa The days I take 150mg, I feel ok mostly but on the days I take 75mg I can tell by the end of the day that things are right. Today is a 75 mg day and it's about 3pm here. I feel ok except for a headache which may not be related. But later tonight will be when I feel bad. Day before yesterday I felt very dizzy, like feeling that I needed to reach out and grab the wall at times. It's very scary and people that haven't been through it don't understand. I'm thinking I might try doing 75 each day by the end of this week. I've been switching them for about 2 weeks.

Trying to act normal is very exhausting. I know people that say oh yea I have anxiety too….but they are out doing things that I know I can't do, smh after this experience I am not going back on anything. It's just too scary. I'm thinking of trying CBD oil.

@anxiouslisa I'm on 150 mg, a few months ago my dr tried to raise that dose. I'm so glad I refused. Just switching the 150 and 75 back and forth is making me feel strange and dizzy. I'm really scared to go down to just 75 but I WILL do it. I want off of this. I will get those vitamins and try them, hopefully they will help out some. I use tumeric when I cook, but maybe I should try it in a supplement. Thank you! Good luck to you tomorrow at work.

I have the swimmy head right now. It's a scary feeling. I'll look that DiVertigo up and get some of that. Thank you. How much of the other things do you take? The fish oil, magnesium and B stress tabs? I didn't know about those. Maybe I should get those to prepare. How long did it take you before you stopped it completely?

Hi, I'm new here. I've been on Effexor for about 4 years now. I had no idea about how hard it is to get off or I'd have never started. I just saw my Dr May 30th and told her I wanted off. I was having anxiety attacks just thinking about it. I take 150 mg. She gave me a prescription for 75mg and told me to switch them back and forth for a few weeks before just taking 75 daily. I'm beyond terrified. I've been switching them lounge she said. I feel weird the nights that I taken the 75mg that day but I'm not sure if it's actually withdrawals or just my anxiety. So far I've been able to take a Xanax when it happens and I'm ok. She didn't give me a lot of info and I'm not sure when I should try to just take 75 all the time. I have about a weeks worth of the 150 left in my bottle and I have refills but will the pharmacy refill it since I just got the 75 mg bottle the other week? I'm so freaked out. I mean I'm really really scared. Tryingto act normal is killing me.
