i went from 150 to 75mg of effexor for 2 months to level out and then tapered from there, pure hell.
*If you went onto another antidepressant after you stopped effexor then that doesn't cound cause they can block eachothers withdrawl effects.*
That's why I had no withdrawals from citalopram when I switched to Luvox. I'm sure it would have been yet another horror story to add to the list. Why do GP's and pdocs keep you going from one SSRI to another, if it doesn't work after 3 different attempts then strike 3 you're out!!!! Paul
