I wonder how much of Effexor's markup price vs cost is to cover the inevitable lawsuits that occur. I've taken Effexor. I suffered through withdrawal. I learned to be very careful and smart about how I discontinue it. You won't find me banging on some lawyers door. Just wait until we can't even take anti-depressants or any drug without signing a release form first to both doctor and drug company.

I had to do it over a three month period, I missed a lot of work due to the flu like withdrawal symptoms and was depressedn the whole time! (Even if you miss your daily dose by an hour or so, the symptoms come on!) It got down to me chipping a little off an Effexor tablet each day just to stave off the effects of withdrawal. People should be seriously warned about this drug. And my doctor was so surprised to witness my difficulties. They have no idea.

> Sara, many medications can cause rebound symtoms. The Key [as you stated] is that titration up or down varies greatly [which many pdocs don't realize].Pcps are less experienced and hand out benzo's and ssri's like candy. The key [as in any case] is the doctor's ability to handle their cases. Pill cutters are not uncommon and good docs know to use them on a case by case basis. There is Nothing wrong with pill cutting to reduce withdrawl. Make sure your doc knows what you are doing and maybe you will both learn something very beneficial. Best Wishes . Micro
