Been taking 150 mgs for sixteen days stopped 2 days ago and very terrified after reading all the horror stories!
My doctor once put me on effexor and I became dizzy, he then took me off cold turkey, had only been on it for 3 weeks, It was awful. He could not believe the withdrawals I had from it. Effexor is a good drug for depression but they should be required to post on their website the horrible withdrawals of coming off effexor, no one, I repeat no one should come off cold turkey. And I say again, if you or your doctor think that drug has not already gotten in your system you are mistaken.
I wish you well, good luck and good health.
