Is anyone else doing right now also? Effexor actually worked pretty well for me. I have been on it for 7 mos. but have gained 15 pounds without a change in eating. I can’t deal with that. I was on Wellbutrin prior for many years (probably prescribed inappropriately). Anyway - On 75 xr and dr. Wanted me to taper by adding 20 mg Celexa - go to 100 mg Effexor for 2 weeks, then down to 50 for 2 weeks, and then stop. From all I have read - I didn’t feel this was a good plan. She said she has never had anyone withdraw badly from it. I am wondering if others have started Celexa while going off Effexor and not experienced withdrawal.
