> I am wondering if there is anything to be done about the wretched withdrawals from Effexor. I have been taking it for about 2 years and have been tapering the past month or so. It has been better this time than last year when I tried to do the same. I am now off completely now and have been for 4 days and I couldn't feel worse. I feel more insane than when I went on the stuff! I almost constantly have those elecetical charges through my brain...I call it "zinging". What do I do? Will it ever stop? Does anyone know how long? Should I just wait it out?? HELP!!!!!!!!

I don't know if anyone else has responed to you, but I have read from other posts that taking Prozac for a month or so might help. Other people say that taking Prozac while tappering down Effexor eases the withdrawl symptoms of Effexor. I would ask my doctor about this approach.
