sg, some good thoughts from sigi, maybe helpful? It isn't either or. Lots of people don't have their sh*t together. They are out waging war or other mayhem. I sometimes wish those folks would get drugged up to the gills and leave the rest of us with a bit more peace.

People can their sh*t together with or without medication. You can reduce and get off, but what is the hurry? Heck, be kind and go slowly.

Like BB said, and, well take my experience. I ended up in the ER because I was yelling my head off and having what I now realize were siezures. I would never expect anyone to
endure that. I had the worst reoccurrence of PTSD in my flipping unbelievably long life.

I ain't worried about you, sg, as just speaking bluntly. Hope it isn't out of bounds.

I might bump effexor up higher on the list after seroquel because it could be a bit of a bear. Maybe not. I hope not. But at least you would have the support of lamictal and klonopin. Some do use a Prozac withdrawal successfully to make the AD discontinuance easier.
