I have been tapering off effexor XR - from 150mg now to 37.5mg per day. I have had many side effects both while going on
this med & while tapering (very slowly) off.
effexor xr for 6.5 years I was able to wear my extended use con
tacts without any problems.
I am 55 yrs old & have worn soft con
tacts since my early 20s without problems. My vision
is poor- coke bottle lenses.
While tapering effexor, I noticed vision
changes. I can no lon
ger wear my con
tacts for more than a day.
