    Question VENLAFAXINE & buzzing in my ears

    I've been on this drug for over 10 years, albeit a very small dose - 37.5 mg taken at night. In the beginning, I was taking Effexor XR 75mg, but halved the dosage when I complained to my doctor that it seemed to make my hearing very sensitive.
    In an effort to be economical, I requested the generic tablet version (NOT extended release) & I break the 75mg tablet in half, thus making my prescription last longer.
    Lately, my ears seem to be buzzing - mostly in the evening when it's quiet - perhaps, that's when I notice it. If you're from the South like I am, the buzzing seems to sound like cicadas in the trees. I'd like to wean myself off this drug, but am afraid.
    Has anyone else had this side-effect or have any suggestions?
