I'm not happy with the side effects of venlafaxine, increased sweating hypertension etc Are there any other antidepressants for example fluoxetine or citalopram, that I can cross taper to get off venlafaxine.
Too get off Venlafaxine(Effexor XR) my doctor slowly decrease the dosage cause the withdrawals can be quite uncomfortable and then introduce Prozac 10mg 2-3 days before my last dose of Venlafaxine. You might wanna talk to your doctor about that they call it “Prozac Bridge” Prozac can be stopped easily since it doesn’t really have withdrawals since it has a really long haft life and then you can see what antidepressants would be the best for you. Good luck!
