Question New Warning for Effexor?

Hi, Still tapering so slow it isn't even funny but can't go faster. Renewed my 35 mg prescription and noticed a warning to not take during pregnancy because the infant could go through withdrawls after birth. I don't think this warning has always been there. Does that mean progress is being made with Wyeth owning up to the fact that they have created drug addicts?

Re: New Warning for Effexor?

It sure is beginning to sound that way. I doubt they will ever come out with a pure addiction warning though

Re: New Warning for Effexor?

I have been reading these posts and don't like what I keep hearing. I am on 150 mg. Effexor (along with other meds), and I wanted to eventually come off of it,but it isn't looking good. It's scary to see that so many people are taking such a highly addictive drug.
