What Foods To Eat While Going Through Drug Withdrawal
Is there another drug that I can be switched to from Effexor (venlafaxine) XR without going through withdrawal that I have read about on line. ?
Yes.: Switching from effexor (venlafaxine) to another antidepressant is generally accomplished by doing a "cross taper" - starting the new med at a low dose and decreasing the effexor (venlafaxine) a bit with a gradual decline in the effexor (venlafaxine) and increase in the new med.
