I am doing so much better's been a week, and the flu like feelings are gone, the nausea is gone, the dizziness is occassionally there, the zaps are there sometimes but are decreasing...every once in a while I will get kind of a wave of general "ick" feeling that I just attribute to the withdrawl...but overall I am feeling so much better...and what you said about your high's going away with your low's...very true. I have really really good days now - haven't had those in a long time!! I am so much better OFF of this stuff. It was a week of hell...but worth it.
Perhaps try the taking Prozac while getting off the Effexor? I know the idea of taking yet another drug to get off of one is not appealing...but if it gets you off this really bad might be worth it. Also there are apparently some really good herbal suppliments you can take while you come off this drug that are supposed to help. And then some people apparently open up the capsules and take out the little balls inside to taper off that way...maybe you should try a really slow reduction method like that.
