Weaning off Effexor?

Hi everyone.. i have been on Effexor for almost 7 years now. My doctor rarely does follow ups unless I ask for them. I have been asking to wean off of them because I feel as though they arent the proper route for me. I am also on Wellbutrin. So my doctor switched my rx to the minimal dosage. I take 37.5 mg once a day. I have been trying to cut that one out, but OMG the side effects are unbearable... My doc has told me to open the caplet and count out the granules and take one granule away per day... Has anyone does this with any success?? I am being tested for all sort of things, since I feel awful, pain in the body, loss of hair, no emotion, no libido, constantly tired etc.. So far it looks like my thryroid..but after some research I am starting to think that my problem is related to the Effexor? Could this be possible?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you
