Im about done posting on the boards, but thought I'd add to this one since I was successful in tapering off Effexor XR from 225mg. Slowly, listen to your body, DONT rush it. It might be tempting but Im telling you, if you want it to be as smooth as possible, DONT rush it. Stay at a dose for a few days or week, then go down another 37.5 and stay there for as long as you need to and so on. Keep in mind any events you may have coming up, dont go down on your dose until that event is over. Its not a race. It took me 35 days to taper off and I had 1 real bad couple of hours because I rushed it one day. Be aware of symptoms so your not freaked out by them and so you know when they have subsided for a couple of days, then go down another 37.5. Be sure your Doc knows what you are doing. I've been off it now for about 26 days. I have some lingering side effects that come and go, but are dwindling each passing day. Biggest problem for me, irritability and easily frustrated. This too shall pass. Im working with a great doc now who is heling me get my body chemistry/hormones and all back into balance. Good luck to you all. God Bless, Renee p.s. somewhere on this board you can find my journal of updates "renee tapering off effexor". probably in archves since it was around the end of dec/early Jan that I started posting that.
