I have spent the last 9 months on Zoloft and rescently was switched to Effexor by my docter. I used it for about a week and Ive decided its not worth the effort, the side affects do not justify the benefits! Nobody tells you that if you miss a pill it will be the worst day of your life! I have had days I wouldnt get out of bed because I was soo dizzy! Its really a shitty situation to be in. So this week I started the tapering down. I now use 1 75mg every 2nd day. I consulted a docter and he agreed to my schedule. Basically every second day is really shitty! I looked online and apparently drug makers dont tell you how hard it is to get off this type of medication! Ive tried every sort of gradual step down and I still feel the effects in full. I'm not even sure what to try next. My best advise.. Make sure you NEED them before you start! Its one thing to need them, its a completely different story to get off of them!
