Jul 20, 2019 · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

@daver how long has it taken you to get to where you are? I'm asking because it's taken a year to get my daughter from 150mg to 37.5 mg without causing her too much discomfort but we seem to have hit a wall now and even taking her down 1 mg is causing headaches and dizziness.

Hang in there! My daughter has hit a wall at about 40mg. We're going to take a break from the weaning so she can stabilize and then we'll try again. You've always given such wonderful advice and support…we're pulling for you!♥️

After a long conversation with my daughter and husband, this is EXACTLY the conclusion we came to. Thank you so much for your support❤️

Has anyone used either Benadryl or Prozac to minimize withdrawal symptoms? My 17-year old has gone from 150mg to 40-ish mg of Venlafaxine but has hit a wall and we're having trouble going any lower without causing significant issues like headaches, extreme fatigue and insomnia. She feels well emotionally but the physical symptoms are taking a toll. I've heard that Prozac can help, but when I looked it up in the PDR it does not recommend that the two be taken together because of serotonin syndrome. Does anyone have advice about how to help us?

@farmboy Would you happen to be a veteran? The company we order CBD from gives a steep discount for vets.

@rascal1 We have a tincture that is 3000 mg of CBD and my daughter takes 1-2 ml when she needs it.

@rascal1 I will take a look at the formulation when I get home. We order ours from Lazurus Oils.

@rascal1 Yes, she uses it while still on Effexor. She's weaned from 150 mg. to 50 mg. over the course of about a year. She hasn't experienced any drug interaction with it as far as we can tell.
