Hi. When I tapered off Effexor one of the main things I noticed was that my hot flashes increased with a vengeance. I'm 48 and in menopause already.
I'm glad to know someone else used the method of taking the caps apart in order to taper Effexor. I mentioned this to a couple of docs who were horrified at first but when I explained I was careful to distribute among the big ones, the medium sized ones and the little ones, each time they seemed to feel like it was a pretty good idea after all. I actually still got brain zaps going from three tiny granules to none.
