I have been on Effexor 75mg for almost 11 years, my dr and I have descussed that it would be better if I went off the effexor because I was starting to have a lot of twitches, and memory problems, and a lot of weight gain with it. So I didn't really want to get off of the drug because it makes you feel really great. But I had to for my life. I started on the zoloft now for 4 days, my dr had told me to go like this Effexor one day then take your zoloft the next, then Effexor again, the next two days take your zoloft, but I can't remember if I just go ahead and take the Zoloft from here on or go to another Effexor. has anyone else had to do this.View Thread
