I have only been on 75 mg a day for the past 5 months. I'm weaning off it for the past week and a half. I have to say its been interesting to see how my "head" is reacting, lol. I havent' had any increased anxiety, which is great. But I do get these random moments of fuzziness and dizziness that only last for seconds. At night though, thats another story! Its like my brain is fighting itself to let me sleep... I'll be in that weird twilight stage where I'm barely asleep but still conscious, and my mind is fighting with itself to sleep or stay awake! its kinda freaky! Also, I've noticed my muscle spasms are getting a little out of control. I do'nt know if anyone else has experienced this, but its happend to be even before the Effexor where right when I'm about to fall asleep my leg will jerk or my whole body will jerk and I immediately wake up! Its so annoying, and man it annoys my hubby too, lol. It seems to be getting a little more common since I've began weaning off the meds though.
Anyways, its been an interesting ride so far.... only being on 75 mgs though means it will be a pretty quick ride for me :) Just wanted to share my experience!
