I am finally Effexor free! It has been 2 weeks now!
If I can summarize the whole ordeal I would say this:

It is easy to drop from large amounts to small ones - almost no withdrawal symptoms.

It is hard to go from small amounts to none at all.

I went from 225 Mg a day to 32.5 mgs by decreasing 75 mgs on week one, 75 mgs on week 2, 32.5 mgs on week 3. When I was down to half 75 mg capsule y quit cold turkey and that did not go well at all. I returned to 32.5 mgs and started taking 10 pellets out every 8-10 days or so. When I got down to 15 pellets I stayed there for about a week and then stopped. The withdrawal symptoms were very mild and lasted almost 3 days. This place helped me very much and taught me to pace myself and that everyone's body quits the drug differently.

I started effexor early on 1999 and quit mid 2004.

Good luck to all who are getting into Effexor or out of it.
