I just wanted to let you know that it *is* possible to get off Effexor. I quit it without tapering after taking 150mg/day for about a year. At first the withdrawal symptoms were nasty but they disappeared completely after about two weeks!! It is my belief that the withdrawal symptoms of new psychiatric drugs should be carefully evaluated before the drug is approved. The pakage insert should include detailed information about the withdrawal.
All the best...
