  • I'm taking it but I haven't tried to come off of it yet because I just started in September. I imagine it would be like coming off any SSRI/SNRI and you have to do it slowly or you will have crazy withdrawals and feel worse before you get better. I went through the w/d coming off paxil, prozac, and had a weaning regiment for Effexor. It's not something you want to stop taking cold turkey. If this is your first antidepressant and you've been on it for a while, you should talk to your doctor about weaning from it.
