I took this from a site that lists the symptoms. This is bad news:
In addition, one very rare side effect, which Effexor’s manufacturer calls “withdrawal syndrome””, is that the patient, once acclimatized to Effexor, is unable to discontinue taking the drug. With this discontinuation effect apparently permanent, the patient is “”hooked for life””.
