Exactly as the title says. I've been trying to get off venlafaxine for a few years but it's never been a good time (school, work, etc) and now that my insurance is set to run out in less than six months, I figure it's a sign to get serious.

I've been taking venlafaxine for about fifteen years, since I was ten, and have only been off as long as five days once due to doctor issues. I remember feeling lethargic and gross (not in a shower way) and having my emotions go a bit haywire (thiugh this wasn't as bad as the just feeling horrible).

So, any advice, suggestions, 'you might want to expects' from anyone who has successfully weaned off after taking it for more than ten years? I really want to do this but I'm a little scared I won't be able to.
