I think its important to withdraw from effexor slowly, so please don't do cold turkey... some people are fine, some aren't - is it worth the risk?? After 7 days cold turkeying from effexor I went back on it.. my pdoc also contacted the makers he was so concerned and they admitted to some instances of problems.
By withdrawing slowly there seems to be little problem, maybe a few, but not alot.. so reduce your amount slowly over about 3 - 4 weeks and see how that goes.
