In reply to Has anyone successfully quit effexor? how?, posted by Anne on April 23, 2000, at 17:26:10
I was pregnant and took 150mg of effexor and he is 10 months old now and ALL GOOD! No probs whatsoever. So smart and doing everything he is suppose to be.
I quit effexor because I had huge heart problems with it. Extreme irregular heartbeat, etc. I took myself off of it under a doctors direction and took zanax while coming off. This helped. The withdrawal symptoms suck but do go away. I had the electrical shocks going through my head, floaty feelings in my head, etc. I just came off of it slowly. It took me a little over a month. I just dropped down slowly. It gets better. Hope this helps.
