> Most of the people here in the posts have stated they have been weaning, but don't state what happens after 37.5 mg. Maybe the people you know took other ADs along with weaning off w/o many side effects.
> If I recall, I'm the only one that has gone cold turkey - from 75mg to 0.
> Another possibility of your thoughts is that people have different intolerance levels - my definition of hell could be normal to someone else.

Response from Calico Cat: I did try going from 75 mg. effexor to 150mg. wellbutrin. Disaster - I felt like I would pass out and outcontrolled sobbing. That's why I am back to square one - 75 mg. effexor (now down to 50mg.) while on 150 mg. wellbutrin. I just have very bad headaches, and the malaise is better - this is day 4 on 50 mg. I just feel like I trusted my doctor when I went on the effexor - "this is what I give all my old lady patients, and they love it." Had I known that this was a life-time commitment, I might have asked for another drug. I never realized how hard the withdrawal was. I think it's great you went from 75mg. to 0. I just couldn't do it. I feel like it is a weakness I have for effexor or is it total dependence? I guess my mind is still in the process of recovering.
