Hi Bridge, I know Effexor withdrawal VERY well... The potentially good news is that Effexor and Paxil have the worst track records for discontinuation. That doesn't mean that you can just quit the other drugs cold turkey...weaning is always the best course of action.

The basis for AD theory is to increase the availability of certain neurotransmitters in your brain--namely, Serotonin and a small degree Dopamine might be affected. It is believe that by not having enough of the NTs the symptoms of depression exist. The brain produced these NTs but also participates in a "reuptake" or reabsorption process...ADs (generally) stop this reuptake and allow for more of the NTs potentially available for brain function.

Does that help?

Take care,
