I've been on three different meds for depression and Effexor is the latest. My doctor never said there would be problems coming off it. The only reasons I've changed meds is because I develope a tolerance to them. How long is the longest that someone being treated for depression with Effexor been on it? Are the withdrawals worse if you've been on it for a long time? Since my depression doesn't ever let up I don't anticipate ever going off medication entirely, but the withdrawal symptoms worry me. I had superduper energy for the first month after starting Effexor, but virtually no side effects since then. Thanks. Kellie
