Hi FB :) I have no real reason to believe Effexor might work for me, I've just refused it every time my doc suggested it because the withdrawal sounds pretty terrible.

I wonder if people who use Prozac to wean off other meds take too low a dose. I know someone who quit Effexor by crossing over to 60mg Prozac for a week, then tapered off that - it worked fine for her.

They cold turkey it or their doctor doesn't believe how hard it can be, though I think they are generally now more savvy due to a trickle down effect of information.
