Getting off Effexor ~ any success w/ Prozac

Posted by Mysteryd on February 4, 2004, at 14:10:12

Hi all,

I'm new here, did a search on getting off of effexor and this seemed to be the message board with the info.

I've been on for almost two years. I started because my son began having seizures and I could not stand the anxiety. They NEVER told me how addicting it was, or that it would be this difficult to get off of it. I'm on day 6~down from 150 to 75 once per day. It's hellish!!! Aside from flu symptoms I have waves of panic that feel unbearable, and my temper is way too short for having two young kids.

I bummed some 5 mg valiums from my sister to get through the weekend, but my doc insists that I need prozac~not valium (cause valium is even more addicting). Has anyone had success w/ prozac or valium?? She wants me to take once prozac a week and no Effexor starting tomorrow.

Any adice appreciated~I'm very leary of introducing Prozac to the picture, at least w/ valium I know exactly how I am going to react.
