The one thing that has been said to ease Effexor Hell is starting Erozac and letting the Prozac gradually wear down over a month, since prozac has a very long half life (stays in your body approx 1 month) while Effexor has two separate half life that each end abruptly or something like that. I found that on Effexor, at least, I could not educe my dose the standard 75 mg, but had to use 37.5 mg caplets instead. In the end I went down al by granuale, counting by hand (rather inexactly). When I went from one granuale to none, I suddenly had massive withdrawal, though assumably better than 37.5 mg to nothing.

There are posts on this website that describe it more thoroughly, but Prozac has been mentioned by many people to ease the withdrawal of Effexor and probably Pristiq.

Best wishes!
