> I am tapering off my 300mg daily of Effexor XR so I can start Lexapro. My question is- Do I have to be completely off Effexor XR before I start the Lexapro? Also does anyone have experience with this switch? What should I expect? Effexor has left me flat. Thanks

My p-doc wrote down her recommendation for switching from Effexor to Lexapro today. *dang, just looked at it and realized i can't read her writing!* <deciphering> I thought she instructed me to take 1/2 Effexor dosage & 1/2 Lex dosage together before quitting the Effexor and full dosage of the Lex. Since that part isn't in writing, don't use my post to base your decision upon. I'm interested in hearing everyone's replies too.

Good luck! Kim
