Of course, there's no independent proof at all that antidepressants work.

And there is no definitive way of getting them out of one's system. Each person is different, and what works for one person does not necessarily work for the next. Some people are unable to taper slowly because it sets them up for a situation where they are in too much pain to ever be able to stop taking (in this case Effexor) altogether. These people have to stop taking the drug all at once or be stuck with it for the rest of their lives.

Since Wyeth hasn't provided any escape hatch, trial and error are our only recourse.

Bitter? Um, yes.
