I take an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) for stage one breast cancer. I could not tolerate the low estrogen and the brain fog so I take Zoloft and Vyvance which help. Still suffer from fatigue which is effecting my job performance. I now have an option to change to Tamoxifen instead of the AI but will then need to change my SSRI from Zoloft to Effexor. I am afraid of getting headaches and insomnia during the wean form Zoloft.
I would say very little problems with this i went through the exact switch and had no problems Normally its best to add the effexor no more than 75mg to start as you drop off the zoloft my doctor did it 50mg at atime for a few weeks but to be honest the zoloft did not do me much good and i finally just stoped it and had no side effects but when they start to take you off of effexor please watch and follow the dirrections very close that is the one that is harder to come off of ..hope all else is coming along for you my friend just try and go slow and follow the doctors advice and you should have no problems,,a friend Chuck1957 medically retired pharmacy technician Cpht Oregon.
