In reply to Effexor XR withdrawal - does benadryl help?, posted by jammy on April 9, 2002, at 12:11:00
If SSRI's dont bother you, you might see about using a small amount of Prozac while coming down off the Effexor. The belief is that since Effexor leaves the body so quick, the rapid loss of effect on serotonin is belived to be somewhat responsible for the discomfort. Some say that adding some Prozac helps ease the discomfort.
Other than that, use might try a sedating Tricylic Antidepressant like Elavil or Surmontil, or even the Remeron the other poster mentioned.
