Two years ago I was px 225mg of Effexor plus Bupropion to cope with depression. I have slowly weaned myself off the Effexor over a year and just took my last dose 10 days ago. I have worked hard with nutrition, counselling, exercise and positive thinking to turn many of my depressive issues around.
I didn't notice any significant drop in mood at any point during the year long withdrawal and although side effects were unpleasant at times, I stuck with it.
But after just a few days Effexor free I am weepy and tired and struggling to be able to do anything. Is it normal to feel like this after finally withdrawing from such a small last dose (37.5mg) and does anyone have advice about how long it might take for my mood/ brain chemistry to normalise without the drug?
