Withdrawal symptoms when patients stop taking Effexor or Effexor XR (venlafaxine)

    Physicians are becoming more aware of withdrawal symptoms when patients stop taking Effexor or Effexor XR (venlafaxine).

    Many patients report dizziness, irritability, and insomnia...usually within 3 days of stopping the drug.

    These symptoms are similar to the ones that some patients get when they abruptly stop taking SSRIs...especially the short-acting SSRIs, Paxil (paroxetine) and Zoloft (sertraline).
