I have been taking Effexor for almost 2 years now. I want to be pregnant in the next couple of months. But I hear that it is not a good idea! I was prescribed Effexor because I had 3 back surgeries in 6 months and gained 100 pounds! WOW! But since I have been taking Effexor I have lost 41 pounds of that. What ( if any ) is that best way to stop taking the drug? If I have missed or stop taking it I get these really bad flush ( electric surges ) that goes to my head. They are no picnic! I feel that I really do not need to be on it anymore. Someone help me please. My doctor just keeps giving them to me.
