> come on, is there anyone out there who didnt' go through hellish withdrawal from effexor, >??

Wanted to let you know that my 15 yr old daughter just went off 225 mg Effexor cold turkey 4 days ago. (This was NOT what the doctor ordered...she started refusing her meds.) BUT, she had been on it for almost a year, even after the dx of BP, and we were suspecting it was preventing stabilization. She had no obvious withdrawal effects. Thankfully she decided to restart her Lamictal and seroquel last night and we'll see if this med change helps her. But this is the second time she's quit Effexor cold turkey with no obvious side effects. (Of course, I guess they could be coming!)
