Guest MOYKM,
I quit Effexor, experienced nasty withdrawal symptoms and survived. You will survive too.

I agree with mooman's observations. I think that you are going down from a high dosage much too quickly.

It would be good for you to discuss this with your doctor soon, making her aware of all that you are experiencing as withdrawal. It's much more than "a bit of bumpy ride". Please do this, both for your own benefit, and for the benefit of any other patients she assists in quitting Effexor, or SSRI's. The patients need to educate their doctors.

Hang in there. Good luck!
