Do some research on this site regarding short term substitution of effexor with prozac. Basically, Prozac has an extremely long half life--I believe it is several days. Effexor on the other hand has a very short half life, about 11 hours. Thus, your seratonin receptors are going through a sort of trauma by having effexor quickly leave your system. You add in maybe 10 mg of prozac to your 37.5 effexor for a week, then stop taking effexor and just take prozac for a week and you should be in the clear. Almost everyone who has tried this on this site has been very successful. Also, benadryl can relieve some of the w/d symptoms including the brain shivers.

Good luck,
