I have a very happy long term relationship with a woman. However I want to ween-off Effexor XR 75mg in order to be able to have orgasms again. When I stop taking it for 3 or 4 days I orgasm quite normally. But, unfortunately, I turn into a Dr. Jeckyll and become unbearable to those around me including myself.
My GP, whom I have great respect and trust, said that if I did
ween-off and find that I cannot cope with the irritability and anxiety
or depression, "that I may be unable to return to the level of normalacy that I enjoy now while taking the 75mg daily"!!!! And that I must choose now between "no orgasms" or "no strong anxiety and depression."
My fiance suggested that I might have just become addicted to it since all of the trauma that I went through 10 years ago, divorce, selling my company, and my home, and moving to Florida from Illinois, and....that since I have lived a predominentlly stress
free life since then, that it is no longer needed.
I would appreciate a 2nd and 3rd opinion!
Thanking you in advance,
