CaliGirl, now during your off time would be the best time to be getting off Effexor. I don't know if the effects of going cold turkey vs weaning off are different. I was on 150mg for 6 mo., then the doc noticed my BP was high, I immediately quit the night doseage thinking it would help the withdrawls. After a few days, I told myself I wasn't going to take the time to wean because I don't think it would be any different. I've been free of Effexor (if you want to call it that) for almost 2 wks now. I may not be swallowing the med, but I think it still has a hold on me.

I made the mistake of visiting my family during this volatile time. I thought I would be able to handle my bi-polar sister - BIG MISTAKE.

Good luck to everyone who is in the same boat. We will conquer this venture and make it to the other side safely.
