Hi Guys,

I need your input as I am really scared. I have been on Effexor for 7 years. 75mgs for the 1st 3 years and 37.5 for the last 4. These last 4 years I have tried numerous times to come off this med but It was pure hell everytime. I have tried Celexa with it to withdraw, Remeron next and neither drug helped, just made it worse. I get the horrible zaps, ear ringing(loud), dizziness and severe anxiety everytime I try to come off Effexor. I went to a new pdoc and he wants me to take 5mg of Lexapro for 1 week with the 37.5mg of Effexor and then stop the Effexor and continue the Lexapro at 5mgs. He also wants me to take this drug called Lamictal which can cause a severe rash in about 5% of all patients. Plus he wants me to take 0.5 mg of Xanax 3 times a day, I already take 0.25mg of xanax twice a day. I AM SO SCARED OF THESE MEDS, especially the Lamictal. I need some help. Please give me some feedback. I DON'T WANT TO FEEL ANYMORE ANXIETY but I know I need to get off the Effexor. Please help.

Thanks,
DF
