My story is that after 3 years at 300mg once a day, I reduced as follows:
2 weeks - 225mg
2 weeks - 150mg
2 weeks - 75mg
1 week - 37.5 mg

I have been off altogether for 4 days.

The tapering process above was excellent compared to the stories on this site.

About 4 - 5 days after reducing the dose I would experience mild symptoms of anxiety, etc for 1 - 2 days.

Untill today all has gone very well. Today i experienced brain zaps every few seconds all day. I have also experienced a heightened emotional state for the last two days.

Other than the above, no other side effects yet. Is this going to get worse or better? I have had no recurrence of the depression or anxiety, although that was pretty much sorted out with therapy, etc.

Has any-one experienced total recovery from symptoms once quitting effexor, and if so, how long does it take.
