> I haven't tried this, but lots of others here have. They say that temporarily taking Prozac smooths out the withdrawal symptoms because the half life is a lot longer. Can somebody else fill in the details??

*I've heard many people say that prozac helps. A person on here wrote that to get people off effexor he would prescribe prozac at the same time. He would taper off until the person was no longer on effexor and THEN taper the person off prozac. I've heard other people say the prozac helps so much. Prozac was no problem getting off, at least for me. No withdrawal. I wish I had known before I had done all of this. I would have done just about anything not to go through the last 3 weeks of hell.

I keep posting, and I apologize if it gets annoying. I'm so shocked at everything I'm going through and have to write about it. If I can keep one person from ever trying effexor....

For 2 years I've been sleeping my life away and felt so lousy and it was the effexor. I have an inflammatory disease, but the effexor made everything much worse.
