Hi folks. Just came from seeing my Dr. And tomorrow will be my first day off Effexor. I anticipate a bit of a rogh ride for a week to 10 days. Anyone have any advice???  I know my brain will be buzzing as my brain will be adjusting to no meds. I plan on doing accupuncture weekly as well as exercising daily!!!!  Hope it doesnt last too long!!!!!

    Some people are able to come off venlafaxine  without any withdrawals you may be one of the lucky 🍀 ones I’m on my last bead of vensir 75mg (6 beads inside)  not what the gp recommended of course  so not endorsing this way , so will be very interested in seeing how you are doing .  You may not feel like eating much while your body is adjusting, so have plenty of protein snacks around as well as healthy snacks and fruit, drink plenty of fluids, and try to keep busy and let friends family know so they can support you if you need it, maybe some supplements, this is what I will be aiming to do 😁 hope it goes well for you John

    I came off it once and I remember getting brain zaps. They lasted a week and once it was cleared I was back to my old self but without the calming effects of effexor.

      Getting a few brain zaps but they are tollerable. Would be nice if they went away soon. Doing lots of exercise and that seems to be helping also. I dont want to be on meds anymore!!!!!  Hopefully this will be the end of them.
