Hey everyone
I have been off Effexor for 1 week and two days. I am doing fine now. It was difficult at first but now I am fine. I just wanted everyone to know that it can be done. I never used Prozac and Lexapro, or anything. Of course, I have been titrating down for a long time - about a year. My max dosage was 150mg, but that was 3 years ago. I went down to 75 for about a year and then 37.5. It works well if you go to taking it every other day then every 2 days and so on. This may not work for everyone though. Fortunately, I am not going to be on any meds now. Had a rough time in nursing school and finished that a while back and just never stopped the meds. It is scary to know you will be without someting you have been so dependant on for so long. But for me the freedom of not being on it is wonderful. I wish all of you the best of luck and just know it will get better. God Bless.
