I have taken this drug (75 mg) for 7 years. I started on Prozac in 1997 whenI had problems with job, husband etc. For some reason I just stayed on prozac until about 2004 when my Dr says "oh, there is a new and better drug for you" and that is the story.
I DO NOT NEED THESE DRUGS NOW! I am 69, retired and secure. I WANT OFF effexor.
I went from 75mg to 37.5mg, on that for a month, then 37.5mg every other day for two weeks. That ended last Wednesday... this is Monday. I feel like a I have been on a drunk for days, no energy, lethergic, certain foods are too distasteful to think about, want to sleep all the time, etc.
