Effexor 75 down to 37.5 OK?


Recommended Posts

Do you think I won't get withdrawals going from 75 Effexor to 37.5? I've been on 75 for three years. It makes me tired and numb at a higher dose. 

 

My Pdoc said to just do it, but I am nervous and wondering whether first I should do 75 and 37.5 on alternate days to wean off a bit slower.

 

Anyone had any experience with halving the dose?

Cheers!

It might be possible to get the 37.5mg tablets that are scored. That way you could do the drop in 18.75mg increments. I have been tapering down from 300mg and I'm at 75mg now. I've done it all in 37.5mg increments and have only noticed occasional withdrawal symptoms if I didn't wait long enough between the drops of 37.5mg (pins and needles one day, and some headaches).
