    I was taking Effexor XR 75mg. for about a year. I weaned off of it about 2 weeks ago. I guess I've been completely off it for a full week. I was just curious if anyone knew how long it actually takes for the med to be completely out of your system.

    Angie:
    Based on some other meds I know about, I would say that a week, maybe two, would be enough.

    All meds have what is called a half life, the time they remaoin in the blood stream and organs. Your pharmacy will be able to tell you the half life of all your meds.

    Some exit within hours, others it takes longer.
