want info about withdrawal side effects
I'm wondering if anyone can help me out here! I've been on a variety of depression/anxiety prescriptions over the past couple of years, the last of which is effexor, and I have recently decided to stop taking these pills. I'm wondering if anyone out there has ever stopped, cold turkey. If so, how long did you experience side effects. Also if you have weaned yourself off this medication I would like to know your experiences as well! I am currently at 37.5 mg, and have just a couple of pills left. I have experienced some side effects on other occasions when I wouldn't take my pills for a couple of days, and have always started taking them again. However I have grown tired of the side effects I experience while taking the drugs and would like to try life without them again, because at times I'm not sure what's worse!
