Today is my sixth day of tapering off EffexorXR from 300mg to 150mg. I'm doing it in increments of 75mg across two weeks. So far, I've experienced the following:

1) Profuse sweating while I sleep.
2) Mood Swings - I woke up today in a great mood, but then my mood changed almost instantly to weepy and anxious.

It might also be important to note that I changed from Teva generic to the brand name (Wyeth) when I started tapering off. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with how I feel, but I can really tell the difference.

What have you guys experienced when you tapered off? Thanks for the support!
