> I'm considering asking my doc for the dreaded Effexor. My depression has gotten so completely out of hand, I simply cannot function anymore. Right now I can barely get out of bed, never mind show up for work.
Some people have awful withdrawal symptoms from Effexor. For me, withdrawal symptoms were tolerable and lasted about two weeks. I went from 150mg to 0mg without tapering.
