Effexor XR Withdrawal

Effexor XR® (venlafaxine XR) and a number of other antidepressants are known to cause withdrawal symptoms in people who quickly stop their medicine. These symptoms include but are not limited to:
 
  • Irritability
  • Agitation
  • Dizziness
  • A burning or tingling sensation
  • Anxiety
  • Confusion
  • Headache
  • Insomnia
  • Tiredness.
     
In most people, Effexor XR withdrawal symptoms improve with time, without the need for any treatment.
 
When a person is going to stop taking Effexor XR, the doctor will wean him or her off the drug slowly to minimize the risks of developing withdrawal symptoms. If symptoms do occur, the doctor may return the person to his or her original Effexor XR dosage and then wean him or her even more slowly.
