I am losing it. I was finally down to 6mg a day of effexor, so i figured i could stop taking it (per doctor's recommendations). Since then, last tuesday i have been weepy, crying, lightheaded, dizzy, etc. Finally yesterday and today i took 6 mg and i am a tad better, but still way more emotional / dizzy than usual. I have a call in to my doctor, but i don't know if i should go back up to 12mg (or more) or just suffer through and get this crap out of my system. (Again, i know some people have had success with this drug, all i've had is problems). My mother-in-law says she's never known me to be as bad as I am now emotionally. Any thoughts? Will i have these effects no matter how frickin slow i go off the med? i've been weaning since december with 225 mg. thanks for any input or support..
