Treated for breast cancer twice--in 2000 and again, in 2014. Was put on 25 mg regular-release Effexor once daily in early 2001 when I began experiencing hot flashes from continuing cancer treatment with Tamoxifen. Discontinued Effexor after 18 years by reducing the dosage slowly. I thought 2.5 months long enough, but it turned out not to be; six weeks, or so after a successful taper, exhibited "Effexor discontinuation" symptoms of agitation, anxiety, akathisia and insomnia.
