I just did this myself so let me share my experience so far. I was taking 75 mg twice daily. Cut down to 75 mg once daily. Then got the 37.5 mg capsules and did 1 pill daily for a week, then every other day for a week. Now off, of course I did this with my prescriber - not on my own.

Sounds like a good plan, but like she said- talk to your doctor about it. They'll know the best way for YOU to do this. Everyone's different so don't take a chance at doing it the wrong way... especially with Effexor. It's a powerful drug. So be careful.
Good luck!
