I'm hoping to get pregnant come June and need to start weaning off my meds. Currently on effexor 37.5 and seroquel 300.  CAn anyone give any suggestions or experiences on what it's like to get off these?!  I've done a zoloft withdrawl before, will it be as bad??  I know I need to do it slowly, but the effexor is as low a does as it comes.....any comments?!

Have you contacted your doctor about this or are you doing it on your own?
All meds have symptoms listed,but not everyone experiences those symptoms.
I would take it one day at a time,and if you start to feel them then contact your doctor right away.

Good Luck on the baby!

I agree with Shy.  Each person is different, some have no problems coming  off the meds and others do.  Please stay in close contact with your physician if your weaning off the meds.

Good luck to you.
