> I did a one week washout from a tca and that was sufficient but no idea about the half life of effexor. If the half life is long then you best take a longer washout period. It also may help you in assessing where your side effects come from, coming off effexor or onto emsam. I didnt want to wait at all but glad I did. I have one side effect and I know its from emsam and its ok. Hope this helps.....

Yes, Steve,it does help, and you are right, I do not want withdrawals and start up side effects at the same time. My fear is that the withdrawals will last for months. I think effexor has a short half life, that is why I start getting sick the same day I do a dose reduction, and why it is so awful. But whatever it takes. I am so glad for all of you that this is helping, we have waited a long time.
