Effexor - how best to come off it

Posted by SunnyGirl on August 6, 2003, at 9:21:51

Hi, I've been on effexor xl about 10 months (went up to 75mg morning and evening at one point, now just on 75mg a.m.) I've begun to remove some of the contents of the capsules, quite small amounts, but was looking for advice on the best way to taper off. (When I reduced from 150/day to 75/day I just stopped when I had flu, didn't notice any change at all!!)

I've read some threads that give advice, some people say don't go cold turkey whatever you do, go for a slow taper, whilst others say that as you seem to get 'brain shivers' etc anyway, slow tapering just puts off the dreaded time!

I'm lucky in that I'm not working at present, and have no serious responsibilities. So what do you think? I know everyone's different!!!!!!

Thanks v much
Judi :)
