> I faxed my doctor a memo telling him what I was going through (although I took 37.5mg of Effexor with my wellbutrin on Sat and Sun). He said that he hadn't had any problem with patients having bad withdrawal symptoms (what do have patients have that I don't to handle this) but that he was sorry. He read some of the articles I faxed him (the FDA notice about Effexor from 2000) and he said he would let me have the 25mg of Effexor tablets so I can wean off more slowly.
> So I am now going to take my 150mg Wellbutrin with 12.5mg of Effexor in the am and 12.5 in the pm. I'll try that for a week and then maybe try to cut out another 1/4 of a pill. We'll see. -Kathy

Hi Kathy- perhaps other Dr.s would be informed if they read some of our postings as well. I don't know if anyone would object though. This is anonymous, right? Anyone know more about this? S
