Re: Am I already addicted to Effexor after 3 month

What do you mean by addicted? Do you mean has your body adapted to it? Partly. Do you mean will you experience withdrawal -- excuse me, "discontinuation syndrome" {rolls eyes} -- if you stop taking it? Maybe. (At 75mg, though, I wouldn't expect you'd experience much discomfort, and there are things you can do to minimize even that.)

Would it be a good idea to stop? If it's helping, probably not. Or, at least not yet. The general rule is that you do best by staying on it about six to nine months past where the symptoms abate, for a first episode of the disorder for which it is prescribed.

Good luck, and i hope this helps.
