> Due to economic reasons my wife and I have had to stop several meds cold turkey. I have quit 150mg Effexor and 0.5mg Clonzapan (depression,restless leg syndrome) in the past few days. After having lots of typical symptoms (from this website)I have re-ordered Efflexor by mailorder. My question is: should I wait the additional 5 - 7 days for it, or take 100mg Zoloft I already have in the interrim time? Or should I at this point,continue cold turkey? If I am over the worst, I would like to stay off it. I am assuming most of my symptoms are from the Efflexor rather than the Clonzapan though both have pretty bad side effects.I am disabled and on a fixed income and my wife just retired as a children's pastor and gets no retirement or benefits. My deductables on meds just went sway up and we were in a tight spot. I know I could probably get answers by reading here further but I am hoping for a faster answer. I am very impressed with this site and am a first-time visitor.

Hi Billy,

I would go ahead and take a tiny bit of the Zoloft to get you through the next few days without too much withdrawal. As far as how long the Effexor withdrawal is likely to last, it's different for everyone. If you are one of the lucky ones, you will feel like you have the flu for a week or two and then be okay. If you are one of the unlucky ones, you may not feel normal for months. It may also depend on how long you were on the Effexor.

It's hard to say what symptoms are from which med since you don't describe what you are experiencing. I didn't experience any withdrawal effects from d/cing Klonopin except a return of my original anxiety.

Hope this helps.
