I take Venlafaxine 37.5 mg for pain. Can I just stop taking it?

No, some people need to reduce their dosage slowly to avoid discontinuation syndrome ~ with side effects similar to those experienced when starting the medication ~ nausea, headaches, *brain zaps*, etc.

I had to stop cold turkey due to an unrelated medical problem and had no problems at all, but some people apparently have a terrible time of it. Consult with your doctor before stopping.
