... cured my anxiety completely and I don't feel the risk of terrible withdrawal is worth the benefits. I've been on it a total of 4 months. I've been taking my highest dose of 225mgs for about 5 weeks and 150mgs before that. How long do you think it will take me to get off this drug? I have a feeling my doc will tell me one month but I'm scared I will go through withdrawal. I want to switch over to Prozac for my anxiety. Any thoughts are appreciated! Thanks!
I have never come off Effexor so I'm unsure... I am on 375mg and possibly getting an addition in for my anxiety and busy worrying thoughts. Good luck if u do change I couldn't tolerate Prozac but we're all different and whatever you are advised I hope it helps :-) X
