I have been on Effexor XR for 6 months now, and have been having some side effects which my psychiatrist has deemed are due to the Effexor. I just started tapering off yesterday and am worried the tapering regimen. I was on 75mg and my dr told me to go to 37.5mg for 2 weeks and then stop. From everything I've read, and people I've talked to, it takes longer than this to go off this drug and that it should be done VERY slowly. Has anyone had any experience with going off of it when they've only been on it a relatively short period of time? Is 2 weeks sufficient to go off this drug? I know how potent it is and I'm just scared of the effects it may have on me in the coming weeks. I am still taking Wellbutrin XL 300mg, and Seroquel 25mg at bedtime. Hoping this will be enough to control my symptoms, but also apprehensive about not having a true SNRI or SSRI on board. Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!
