> My doc refused to prescribe a small dose of prozac to help with the withdrawl. I am weaning from 450 a day of effexor. This isn't the first time I have attempted to get off of this terrible drug. Today is my first day going cold turkey. I feel awful! The doctor said he thought the "brain shiver" vertigo feeling is all in my head and offered xanax for anxiety. I am going to try this drug free I guess. I hope the withdrawl ends soon. I want my pre effexor life back!

**I think you need a doctor who listens to you. A lot of people on here try "5-htp" and said it really helped them. Going off 450mg cold turkey would be very harsh on the body, I think. I'm glad I never went up that high. Anyway, you can find 5-htp on the internet or at a supplement store. I take the "Yarrow" brand just because it was recommended to me.
