I was started on Effexor XR on June 25th - I was given 37.5mg the first day and took 75mg per day (in the morning) from June 26th - July 11th (so I was on the 75mg dose for just over 2 weeks). I asked to be tapered off on July 11th, and my doctor advised me to take 37.5mg for 3 days, then 37.5mg every other day until July 18th. So today is the first day I haven't taken any (I took the 37.5mg tablet July 12, 13, and 14). I'm supposed to take 37.5mg on Monday and again on Wednesday - then I'm done. Is this enough of a taper to get off of Effexor without having any serious withdrawal symptoms?
