Sun, May 31 8:29pm · Tips on minimising withdrawal symptoms from Effexor (aka Venlafaxine) in Depression & Anxiety

Hi Jon, I tried several times to taper off Effexor XR ( slow release ). Went from 37.5 daily to 5 times a week for a week, then 4 times a week for a week, then 3 times a week for a week, then every second day for week, then every third day for a week. All went well both times until around 6 weeks not taking any. I started waking up at 4 am, became restless, and agitated at the least little thing. Had to go back on. Not sure where to go from here, thinking of taking one every second day for around 3 months or switching to Effexor IR ( immediate release ). They are in tablet form rather than capsules, I could taper off more slowly because I could cut the pills. Also thinking of using CDB to help with the tapering.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks

Did you switch to Effexor IR to wean off?
