Good evening, I have been taking Effexor XR 75 mg for 9 years and now up to 112.5 mg for the past 7 weeks. because of bad side effects, I am going back down to 75 mg but feeling horrible symptoms to a point that I am reducing by 1/2 of the 37.5 mg caplet. As anyone here experienced very bad tappering off symptoms like this: nausea, gas (sorry), dizzy, bowel issues... I get flu like symptoms like when I lowered paxyl a long time ago
