I've heard of people having severe withdrawl from Effexor. I was on it for a year before it pooped out and went immediately onto another drug. I didn't have any withdrawl problems.
I would think that 2 months is plenty long enough to be off effexor. Perhaps you still need some therapy/med?
In my opinion, and this is probably WAY out in left field, I think that when our brains become used to a medication, then that med is taken away, it doesn't know how to function like it used to. Now, I know that our brains aren't a seperate entity and we're supposed to have control over our thoughts, but the chemical make up can change so drastically. Maybe therapy can straighten that out, I don't know.
So, back to your question. You really should contact your doc and let him/her know what's going on. It may be that you still need some meds to keep your chemical make up balanced.
Best wishes,
