getting off effexor

Jan 6, 2011

when does your body quit feeling bad when not taking drug?

Response from Dr. Fawcett

Effexor is an anti-depressant that must be gradually tapered, that is, the dosage must be slowly reduced so that your body can adjust. If you stop using the drug too quickly you can experience not only mood problems but also feelings of nausea, aches and pains, an even a strange sensation that some people call "brain shivers." Work out a dosage timetable with your doctor to be certain you come off the drug safely and comfortably.
