I am having a myelogram and was told to stop Effexor 48 hours before test. I have been weaning myself slowly down to 25 mg once a day.I have had really bad brain zaps when I tried stopping this medicine before and am very worried this will happen again . Any advice?
Hi MJR 3126 I’m guessing ur in America as in Australia the lowest dose of effexor is 37.5 mg it’s very hard to wean off this drug I stayed on the lowest dose for probably a month then did 1 day take a tablet next day not and then after a while 1 tablet every 3 rd day until I felt confident to stop all together
