I was taking 300 MG per day
Hi, B33! Hopefully, you were tapered off your dosage slowly because a few people can suffer fairly severe withdrawal symptoms. And a few people may find it takes weeks to months to *feel better* even if they do taper off.
I've had to stop Effexor abruptly twice for another medical reason and the only problem I had was rebound depression within days of stopping.
Best wishes, WCV
