    I've kicked heroin, methadone, alcohol, cocaine and benzos, but NONE of them made me feel worse than trying to ween off this shit.

    DON'T fucking do it on your own.

    I jumped out of the highest dosage (venlafaxine) with little tapering and it was a big mistake.

    I was taking it for anxiety
    so does 95% of the shit you post.

    I tapered off of a couple of SSRIs and it was nothing like this.

    those aren't side effects. those are the normal effects of effexor. its always done that and pretty much everyone who's taken it knows it. .
