Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
if you are having depression and hopelessness symptoms, you should resume your effexor which can help fight depression
and let your doctor know
it may not be a good idea to taper your effexor
you may benefit from continuing to take it to fight depression
if it worked for you in the past, it should continue to work for you
let me know if you have questions.
