After a year of taking Effexor (venlafaxine) daily I'm going off of it per my doctors instructions. I am having relentless painful dizzying headaches. Please help.?

Going off Effexor (venlafaxine): Let's assume your doctors have good reasons. But it could entail a discontinuation syndrome, if your doctor doesn't do it right.
