This is my first time posting... I have been on SSRIs since Sept. 2003, Lexipro/paxil/zoloft/ and finally Effexor. I started at 150mg/day and eventually tapered to 37.5 every other day as of last week. I took my last dose (5) days ago and have experienced some withdrawal (specifically, dizziness/light headiness/Brain Swooshes- not sure how to describe those. They have dissipated substantially due to time off the drug as well as some advice to take OTC Benadryl or Claritin. Is there or normal period of time for the withdrawal process.... Feeling a heck of a lot better, more energy, no fatigue, sexual side effects. Any advice/encouragement would be appreciated.
