From experience, tapering on Effexor lead to some side-effects, but most were minor and dealt with by taking the medicine at night and going through some headaches.
Tapering off Effexor brought new and much more severe side-effects, what Wyeth Laboratories calls discontinuation symptoms. These were much worse, much more painful, lasted day and night, and only got worse the lower dosage you go.
What seemed to help was Benadryl during the day as needed, Allegra-D if Benadryl makes you tired, I've heard Dramamine helps but haven't tried, low dosage of Prozac 10mg as prescribed.
If you experience these discontinuation sympotms, the FDA would like to hear about it.
