I have been on Effexor xr for about a month and a half. I started out on 37.5mg for about 30 days and got bumped up to 75mg, and been on that for about two weeks now. I couldn't stand the side effects and I don't believe it's the medicine for me.
So today I told my doctor I don't want to be on it any longer. So she called today and said "go back down to 37.5mg....then after that, a few days later, just stop taking it."
A few days???
I thought the tapering process took longer, but I don't know. I know it's only been a month and a half, but I've read countless testimonies that the withdrawals are hell. Is my doctor doing the right thing?
