Hey All,
 
Just curious if anyone had any experience with effexor discontinuation 'syndrome'? I followed the taper program set out by the pdoc and once I had finished to 0mg/day I started getting nauseous. I can handle it for a while since I'm feeling so super, but just curious if anyone had any experience with how long it will usually last. Overall, the nausea is more tolerable than the what the perpetual effexor indigestion was so its no real biggie either way.
 
Hope everyone is coping through the hurricanes. My thoughts are with all of you.

Hi, putter -

I know what you're going through, have seen countless patients go through it.   I  found you a website from REAL PEOPLE, the "studies" on discontinuation are usually manufacturer funded and biased.  mad There is stuff all over the internet, and since everybody is different in reactions to meds, the length of time for this "syndrome" to leave is different, too.  Is all you're having is nausea?  If so, you're getting off easy, lol.  I really do hope that's all you have.   Good for you, getting off it!  yeah   Yay!  Did the doc give you anything in place of it, Lamictal?  Welbutrin?
