Hi Kara.

> I don't know if this will help you at all since my withdrawal was fairly standard. I decreased VERY slowly (opening capsules and then later cutting the 37.5 mg. tablets). I had very little problem with this. When I was nearing the smaller dosages and I felt a bit of a problem, I took one 300 mg. capsule of St. John's Wort.

That's an interesting approach.

> I only did this two or three times. I think it helped though I'm not positive because my problems with the withdrawal were minimal at that point anyway. When I finally got off of the last quarter of a pill (a little under 10 mg.), is when I started having some unbearable problems. After two days of that, I took a small amount of Cymbalta for a few days and that completely took away all of my side effects.

Did you continue with the Cymbalta, or use it only to ease your withdrawal? Do you recall how much you needed to take to resolve the Effexor withdrawal symptoms?
