Still Can't Reduce the Dose
Citation:   ZareliMan. "Still Can't Reduce the Dose: An Experience with Venlafaxine (exp52377)". Erowid.org. Apr 1, 2007. erowid.org/exp/52377

150 mg oral Pharms - Venlafaxine (daily)
  150 mg oral Pharms - Venlafaxine (daily)
The doctor said I have endogenus depression so I started with 75mg/day of venlafaxine and other non-relevant pharmaceuticals. Then the dose was increased, 1 pill at day and 1 pill at night, I had some difficults to sleep but I managed to sleep well.
My life continued as expected, very well and I started to think that the venlafaxine was rather expensive, and I started to reduce the dose, but in 3 days I started to feel dizzy and started to feel electric shocks in my body.

The 9 months I had been taking Venlafaxine showed themselves, so I think in my vacations I'll quit abruptly the medication, because If I do it now It can be dangerous at college.

The Venlafaxine is very addictive, at least If you're going to become addict to something, choose something cheaper :(
