Effexor needs a longer half life

I am not a chemist, but it appears to me that Effexor needs a longer half life. It dumps out the system too fast and that is responsible for these cripling withdrawal effects. That's why Prozac is helpful. Prozac's half life is several days. They don't need a withdrawal med. They need to extend the half life of the med. It seems this drug is giving the brain a rush of 190 proof like power and then drops to zero in a few hours. The result is like a decent into Hell.

Personally, I wouldn't dare put myself into that fix. It's not about having a strong will power. It's about chemistry. I would definately use Prozac to help. A doctor friend of mine switched to Lexapro. He didn't have the Hellish withdrawal either.
