May 28, 2019 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

EFFEXOR…no matter the dose or the time on the drug is a medication that needs to be avoided at all costs. The withdrawal symptoms from effexor are intollerable I was on 225 mg for 5 months and my physician decided to stop my med cold turkey and put me on Lexipro . The withdrawal was insufferable and lasted 6 months . The only way I received any relief was thru my Psychiatrist who herself had been on Efexxor and understood the chronic withdrawal process. There are safer antidepressant meds that do not have the same withdrawal effects. anyone who has been thru this understands. If your provider suggests Effexor, REFUSE…Sincerely hope this helps someone. The life altering effects of Efexxor withdrawal will stop It's just very hard to see that light at the end of the tunnel when it's happening to you.

stay away from xanax unless it is used for a very short time . More than a few days and suddenly stopping can be a horrendous experience . The anxiety that you feel is nothing in comparison to xanax withdrawal
