A 49-year-old member asked:
Is cutting my effexor (venlafaxine) dose in half a good way to not have withdrawal?

Ask your prescriber: Effexor (venlafaxine) withdrawal can be significant. Talk to the doctor who prescribed this medication about a plan to taper it before cutting down the dose on your own.
