> Hello! I am on Effexor and have heard horror stories about coming off of it. I am scared!!! I am on XR 225mg. I feel great! I have energy and my moods are even. What dose were you on?? I am so scared to come off of it. Did you wean slowly??

I was on 150/day, time-release.
And it wasn't effective. Mebbe cuz I was't on big enuf dosage.
Don't be scared. If you have to go off it, then you DO and there's nothing to do but just take it one day at a time. BUT it sounds like it's working wonderful for you so you might not have to come off it.
When I came off it, I went to every other day...then half a dose every other day, then 1/4 dose every other day. And on Friday when my mood went downhill so bad, I decided NO MORE. :/

The withdrawal isn't supposed to start for a couple days, but my teeth have been tingling and I've got no energy and...blech.

Anyway, relax and enjoy the benfits so far! :)
