... give any advice on how to minimize the symptoms. I have been taking 300X2 daily for anxiety for 9 months. I also take 225mg of Effexor for depression but wont be coming off this just yet. I tried coming off Effexor last year after taking it for 8 years but withdrawals were so severe I ended up in mental hospital for 10 weeks. Cant afford to have a nasty withdrawal from the Lyrica as I'm still recovering from the trauma of last year.

Thanks for your help
