Why if the first week is the worst when stopping this medication, did the doctor put me back on 150mg effexor xr and want to ween me off over next 6 months?? What was so bad?
Yup, good question and dont learn the hard way by just stopping! I also take 150mg a day of this med and have not stopped it, the saying is titrate up, titrate down!
I learned the hard way on a drug called trazadone and was on 125mg of this at bedtime, well the nuerologist took me off this and one other sleep drug, he writes down for me to stop trazadone and I did and OH NO - big mistake, I had bad withdraw symptoms and later that night it triggered a siezure!
