Hello...i started reducing slowly from venlafine about three months ago...i counted the number of beads in the capsules (500) and then started reducing by approx 10 beads a week. When i had something important on a work or in my personal life i slowed down the rate of reduction. Usually i would feel sick,dizzy, have brain zaps and be a bit anxious for three or four days after reducing, then feel fine for a few days, then reduce again.
Over Christmas I had two weeks off. I decided to see what would happen if i reduced by 10 beads a day - i knew that because i had a quiet christmas i would be able to have the withdrawal effects without needing to do an work etc.... I did this...and stopped experiencing any withdrawal symptoms apart from a slightly buzzy head!
Has anyone else had a similar experience? I don't know how to explain it! I expected to feel much worse but feel fine.
