I was on 75mg of it. Tapered it down over 4 days and now I'm feeling weepy, cranky, anxious, snappy, lightheaded and overall MISERABLE!! Help!! Am I supposed to be feeling like this?
Tapering over 4 days is much too fast. You needed to take more like 4 weeks. You are probably feeling withdrawals from the medication plus you no longer have the benefit of the antidepressant/ antianxiety properties of the Effoxor in your system. So yes, it isn't unusual that you feel this way. You can restart the Effexor and and take more time to taper or tough it out. What are you going to do if the symptoms for which you were taking the Effexor return?
