>I would be curious to know if anyone has tried to discontinue an SSRI or Effexor while taking Buspar. I am wondering if the agonism of 5-HT1a autoreceptors won't help buffer the understimulation of these receptors that might occur when serotonin reuptake inhibition rapidly vanishes.
Yes, I'm curious too. Perhaps you should start a new thread to ask people whether they've found this strategy useful.
Btw, I'd like to be able to contribute to your thread about avoiding Effexor withdrawal symptoms. Sadly, I don't have any useful experiences to post because I discontinued Effexor 'cold turkey' when my mother threw the capsules in the bin. I also discontinued Seroxat (Paxil) without tapering but I started Prozac the next day and so it's not really surprising that I didn't have any withdrawal symptoms.
