I have been on Effexor for over 18 years and due to financial circumstances and losing my insurance I have to come off the medication abruptly.I'm unable to go back to the doctors at this point to get more meds and the withdrawals are horrendous with the popping in my head in the uncontrollable crying. Please someone give me hope that there is an end in site. I came off of 150mg daily but have been all the way up to 375mg daily for over 18 years.
