Its been 96 hours (4 days) being off of Effexor XR. I took 75mg for almost 5 months. I dropped down to 35 for two weeks and then went off of it completely. The first three days were HELL!! I had the brain zaps and wanted to kill myself. Today is much better. I still have them but everytime I get them I just say, "THank YOU JESUS" because He really saved me. I was trying to get pregnant while on this and my stupid doc told me it was fine. I can't imgagine what this drug would have done to my child.

I have been excercising for three months and during withdrawls I cried all the way there and back but I forced myself to do it. I went to acupuncture 3 days, had a de-tox massage, and have been taking herbs and vitamins to stregthen myself.

I am hoping in a few days the brain zaps will be gone completly and I can get back to my old self.

It's been a rough journey but I am glad me and Effexor are parting ways and WILL NEVER be friends again!!!
