Going off Effexor

Posted by Nash McCutchen on November 23, 1999, at 20:58:00

In 1991, I was diagnosed with depression.
I was put on Prozac and stayed on it until 1997
when I switched to Effexor. I now feel that I no
longer need an anti-depressant. I am not in treatment
but simply see a doctor every 6 mos. or so for

How can I go off Effexor without any side effects?
I have tried to go cold-turkey, but could not stand
the dizziness and feelings of eletrical shocks in my
brain. Is the only answer to taper off dosages? I am
currently on 150mg/day.

Thanks for any help.
