Renee Tapering Off Effexor

Posted by not2late4u on January 5, 2005, at 1:57:18

Thought I'd start a new thread posting my personal experience while tapering off of Effexor:

Here's the tapering from 225mg to date:

Day 1 = 187.50 (saturday) 12-25-04
Day 2 = 150mg
Day 3 = 150
Day 4 = 150
Day 5 = 112.50 (wednesday)

Day 6 = 112.50 thurs 12-30-04
Day 7 = 112.50 fri
Day 8 = 112.50 sat
Day 9 = 75 mg Sun
Day 10 = 75 mg Mon
Day 11 = 75 mg Tuesday 1-4-05

During this time, I have been functionable ( went skiing, moved into a new office.) The first couple 2-3 days I slept more and was able to not work as much, not because I couldnt, but because I wanted to give myself that care. Withdrawl symptoms? barely, some head twinges (others call them zaps), these come and go. Some minor mood swings. Nothing uncontrollable. A couple very brief anxiety surges. So far so good. Will post again in a few days. Renee
