Taking multiple psych drugs? Which drug to taper first?

Recommended Posts


I was on Effexor for 6 weeks 15 years ago. For me, it was a huge accelerator. I had so many side effects on that drug I just stopped taking it. Back then, I didn’t know any better.  Now I know tapering is definitely  necessary. A 10% taper every 4 weeks MAY work for you, if you are one of the lucky ones. Just listen to your body and respect what is telling you. If it were my choice, tapering Effexor first would be it.  So few people are on Buspar. This is the first time I have read anything about it here, though you could search for others’ experiences. I hope you can “ chip away” at Effexor steadily and with w/d symptoms relatively controllable.
