Piglet292: going off Effexor


Recommended Posts

Tomorrow morning I’m starting the dreadful journey of withdrawing from Effexor. Currently taking 300mg mane. I’ve been taking for >10 years, so I’m expecting the worst. My GP is very much onside, thank goodness. Over the last 4 years, I’ve taken myself off quetiapine, nitrazepam, regular lorazepam (up to 8mg per day), dihydrocodeine and tapentadol (opiate). I’m still taking OxyContin and Pregabalin. I suppose I’ll have to get off them sometime.

Welcome, @Piglet292


I moved your post here to start your own Introductions topic, where you can discuss your own situation and post about your progress.


Before you do anything, please see Tips for tapering off Effexor (venlafaxine) What kind of Effexor are you taking? Is it a capsule with tiny beads inside?
