> One thing to consider is that for a while (several weeks) your actually going to be taking both of them until the prozac washes out.

So here is the scoop... for quiet a few months I was at 30 mg of prozac, which was working quite nicely, except for some anxiety (which I really didn't notice, but others did) - doc said to switch to effexor - here is what the plan was:
3 days at 20 mg of prozac
3 days at 10 mg of prozac
7 days at 37.5mg of effexor
4 days at 75 mg of effexor
didn't like effexor so after talking to doc, the next day started at 40 mg of prozac

On average, how long before effexor is out of my system? I've had some really intense headaches (I am on day 3 of 40 mg of prozac) that I attributed to the effexor, but is it because of the increase in the prozac? I hate this - I really don't feel like myself at all.

Thanks for any info or advice... JJ
