... myself off, very slowly and in gradual steps, down from 150mg. I have been completely off for 2 weeks, and I am feeling fine. The trick is to spend 2-3 weeks on each level before stepping down again. Best wishes to everyone

Great... keep it, my wishes with you!
Congratulations renniesmuum. Good for you. As you said, the key is gradual. And best wishes go right back to you.
That's awesome. Congratulations!
Congrats! Now my problem is weight gain if I try to wean off Effexor. It's like I sacrifice a healthy sex life to keep extra pounds off. Am I being silly or what? Help!
Hey, that's great, well done! I've been on 225mg a day for some 12 years now, and don't feel ready to come off yet, but reading your comments and knowing it can be done is a great help and very motivational to all of us. Good luck in your continued success!
