It's day 8 since I've been cutting back on the Effexor. Dr told me to take 2 for 10 days then 1 for 10 days then 37.5mg for 7 days. I couldn't tell a whole lot of difference when i cut down from 3 to 2 so I went ahead and cut down to 1 after only 7 days. i feel a little more tired today but that isn't real unusual for me to have sleepy days. If I can getting off the meds that I'm on now quicker than the doc said then I can start the trial for cymbalta.
