Tue, Jun 25 8:34am · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

Thank you for your responses. I have not had a Dr. That will take the time to discuss this with me and am tryin to find a new physician. One of the problems with our health care system is finding and keeping a good one.

I am having a problem with anxiety after being completely off effexor since Feb. what do any of you recommend for this that is not addicting and possibly on an as needed basis. I have an appointment with a new physician tomorrow

I have been totally off Effexor since the end of Feb. after a year of slowly weening off from 75 mg once a day that I had been on for 25 year or more. I did well up until the time I was finally totally off, and I mean I had been down to 5 little pellets in the capsule for two weeks. Now I find myself really stressed and overwhelmed when anything goes wrong. I am a 71 yr old widow living on a farm and enjoying it till things break down. I will not go back on effexor. Any suggestions

Take it slow and if you have to stay steady at a dosage for longer.

I agree. My dads death was what got me on effexor! You are doing well and I suspect this is a reaction to the death of your dad and your moms dementia. Take care.

I was on 75 once a day and although that is not a high dosage, I have been on it well over 20 years. Over the course of a year I was able to wean myself off completely and have not taken any since Feb. 2019. I do have some days that I feel kind of blank and the other day I did not recognize someone I had spoken to only minutes before. This scares me but I am hoping it is still the effects of effexor

I was in 75 of Effexor and I took a year to go off of it, and still had bad withdrawal. Please go slow

I have tried that quick method, although most Drs. consider it the accepted method of getting off Effexor. It was a sure fire method of keeping me on the meds whether I needed them or not, because I was terrified of going off them.
