  1. I am on day 4 of no effexor xr 75 mg. I was prescribed this 7 months ago for debilitating anxiety with regular panic attacks. When I began the medication, I felt relief after about 2 weeks. The relief I felt was so great, I encouraged others to consider it as an option for anxiety symptoms. Effexor XR helped manage my whirly and obsessive thought patterns. I felt much more chipper and didn't let things bother me so much. My emotions were pretty well under control, I did notice that I cried a lot less. After about 5 or 6 months I noticed it wasn't working as well. For some reason the drug was making me nauseous throughout the day. I decided it was time to quit effexor xr. I am a regular user of cannabis, and had been playing around with my doses throughout the past 7 months. Cannabis is legal in my province, and I also have a medical prescription to use it for anxiety. 2 or 3 weeks ago I started to take my effexor xr 75 mg every other day. The next week or so I took half a capsule every other day. And today I am on my 4th day of no effexor. My symptoms include brain zaps (I don't feel bothered by these-but I do notice the sensation) some nausea, possibly and increased appetite for sweets, lots of weepiness and difficulty controlling my reactivity (trying to stay away from people at work who trigger me so I don't react or say something inappropriate), I've lost the awesome vivid dream worlds that were so significant on the drug (I loved this side effect of effexor), loose stools and general spacey feeling. concentrating seems a bit of a challenges sometimes, as well as articulating. So far, not too bad. It's great to read about other's experiences'-this has helped me a lot.
