Well I finally succeeded in getting off of the effexor. But about 4 days later I began to feel so low, I would have to look up at a snake. So I started taking some Effexor xr (75mg)with my 300mg a day of welbutrin. I seem to be doing ok with this dosage. I still have some energy and the other problems seem better.

> I am thinking of switching to Welbutrin (I have depression and anxiety, mostly anxiety). I am now on 225 mg of effexor and taking a ambien (a sleeping pill at night). How is it going now? Do you recommend switching?
> > > I recently switched from Effexor to Welbutrin. Had no problems with withdrawal. The Dr. Had me ramp down. I switched due to sexual side effects. That was the only side effect I had, otherwise the Effexor was working great. Wish I could say the same for the Welbutrin.

> > It may have been no problem with you but it is a purple bitch for me. I tapered off reducing dosage at the rate of 37mg per week. I then quit and I felt nausiated, headaches, general malaise, ringing in the ears, with sudden sharp disturbances in ears and eyes. I quit and switched to welbutrin for the same reason you mentioned, but as of now, I have been off all effexor for two weeks and I still feel awful. I don't know the answer yet but I will let you know. Any help would be appreciated
