Hales: Effexor


Recommended Posts

Hello, I’m new here and not sure if I’m posting correctly, so I apologize if not. 


I was on effexor for a few years and it made me a completely different person. I was terrible, honestly. I tapered probably way too quickly, and four months later I’m still experiencing withdrawal symptoms. I’ve been reading about reinstating and it seems like a good idea but I’m just wondering...will I become a terrible person again at a really low dose? Effexor made me feel great but I ruined everything that was going good for me and I’m terrified of doing that again. 


Thank you so much in advance for any help you can give
