Hey Twopeople, I am sorry you had such a response! That is most terrible. I take Effexor XR and am doing well on it now...dread the day I may have to change or come off of it but anyway....I really wouldnt recommend changing your dosage or the kind of caps that your taking with this medicaiton at all. I know when I even miss a days dose I can really feel the side effects the very next day, it isnt pretty. If your wanting to change meds or go off the medication then please do consult your prescribing physician about
this and let them help you wean off safely as doing this on your own can be very dangerous. Otherwise, you may just want to caulk this up to a learning experiance and know that you shouldnt mess with your meds like that.
