> Kara,
> How are you doing? I have been reading posts on this site and am scared what will happen when I get down to no effexor. Is that when withdrawal sets in for real? How far along are you?

Hi J,
Are you still at about 28 mg? I'm going to cut back to a quarter pill (~ 9.4 mg.) from a half a pill sometime in the next few days. I'm a little scared too. I'll take a St. John's Wort capsule that evening I cut back and maybe on some other nights if I feel I need it. Ginkgo also helps a lot of people (not to mention Prozac) so these are all options if the effects get too bad. So far though I have to knock on wood because they've been very mild but I haven't gone off of it completely yet.
