I came off Effexor myself a couple of years ago. To my surprise, cold turkey was not the way to go. It was the worst experience in my depression treatment yet. If you are going to get off any a.d. do it as gradually as possible. The effects of cold turkey can be dangerous in the way that I felt suicidal. I am on Celexa now which has been great. If I forget a day I don’t get dizzy and get those ‘electrical charges’ going offin my brain. All I can say is, I’m really sorry your doctor and my doctor didn’t emphasize enough how one shouldn’t stop a.d. so fast!
