I have been on effexor
XR for the past 2 years. I was taking 300 mg a day with Lamictal 200mg/day and
Seroquel 100mg to sleep. The effexor
wasn't working so my psychiatrist wanted to drop the effexor and
replace it with Lexapro 10mg/day. He told me to "just" drop my effexor
dose by one 75 mg pill a day and
I would be "off" of the effexor
in 4 days. Yeah, right!!!
Having once before attempted to "stop" effexor
, I knew it wasn't going to be that easy.
