The enormity of this withdrawal is frightening. Probably one of the reasons it took me a while to attempt getting off. I am so happy that I did it. Off the depakote (which me and my therapist never thought i needed anyway) and the effexor. still need to take about 25 mg of trazadone or i'm up and down all night. The ONLY problem with not taking all these meds is that I forget to take my thyroid medication!!!!!!!
Today I'm quitting, or have quit rather, smoking. I put the patch on about 2 hours ago, so far so good. Normally I'd have had at least 5 get the day going cigarettes. I know this is going to be tough.
The thing with the effexor, you don't crave it like cigs and alcohol. Nothing is like the alcohol detox, effexor was a piece of cake compared to that.
It's been a solid month since no effexor at all, I weaned off of 37.5 for about 2 weeks, 1/2 to a little less every couple days, then every day the granules got halfed. Reading posts here, I was scared the side effects would have been a lot longer, but i really feel good. Good luck to you and anyone getting off.
