I have worked on tapering off of my effexor. I got down to about 9.5 mg/day and I have cut that out completely. It’s only been a couple of days with nothing, but I feel awful. I suffer from migraines and my mothers’ day was ruined because of one. Had to spend the whole day in bed! I keep getting the “brain zaps”” and have very little energy. Personality-wise, I am still as upbeat as I can be, but it is really frightening to me that a medication that can make such a huge difference when you need it, can be so awful to get away from when you don’t. Any advice on how to calm the bed-spin like things my head is going through right now?
