I went through the exact same thing when I tapered off of Effexor XR! The rebound symptoms were horrible horrible horrible, worse than my original problems, I couldn't handle anything! I always suggest(I'm not a doc of course) to never stop taking effexor without not moving on to something else for awhile, THEN if you want to go med free, taper that way. For example, my brother took Effexor for a couple of years, and then switched over to lexapro for 6 months, before tapering off completely. He is not on an SSRI anymore, and has been off of them nearly a year now (and is fine I might add from my understanding). If he ever wants to go back on them, he knows what works with tapering, I on the other hand, learned the hard way!
