One way to successfully work yourself off effexor is to start a week or two of prozac 20mg. Due to its long half life, it stays around a long time and helps cushion the blow. I used it when I was taking effexor 200mg daily and decided to quit the effexor as well. Af far as I can say, it was as if I had never taken the effexor. I was at 200 mg of effexor for 6 months + and the prozac worked well. Ask your doc for a couple weeks worth and see how it goes. Let him / her decide how to taper / stop. If you search, you will find several posts in regards to your question that were posted several months ago. Good luck,
