Oct 24, 2018 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

I’m wondering if you or anyone else had to take a leave of absence while getting off this drug? I could not function at my job when I decreased to 75 mg. I had to go back up. I’m afraid to try it again

While tapering down on Effexor, I had just cut my dose in 1/2, so I was at 125 mg. I could not function at all. I just sat at my computer in a fog, crying. My cognitive ability was decreased. I called my doctor and she said to start the Prozac immediately instead of waiting until I was completely off. Well Prozac did nothing for me at that point. I had to go back to 225 mg. I have been Effexor XR since 1998 or 1999. This medication is the only one that works for me. When I was a teenager, Prozac worked but not now.

Taking Prozac did NOT help me when I was tapering whatsoever
