Hi, huet! You'll need to follow a reducing dose schedule of your Effexor which your Physician should provide. At the same time you'll start taking the Tofranil gradually.
Best wishes, Wildcat.
PS, Tofranil was the first antidepressant I took back when I was a teenager.

I took Effexor XR 37.5 (generic) for 8 days. It makes me extremely tired. Today, I skipped it to see if I got the withdrawal symptoms that everyone says. If you are on a higher dosage do titrate down slowly. I'm very light-headed today & I got a headache. The taper isn't an easy one.

I remember a friend of mine took Tofranil in the 70s & 80s & it worked for her.
