Withdrawal from Venlafaxine, also known as Effexor, can cause dizziness as a common symptom. Venlafaxine is an antidepressant medication that affects the levels of certain chemicals in the brain, including serotonin and norepinephrine. When someone stops taking Venlafaxine, they may experience withdrawal symptoms such as dizziness, headaches, fatigue, nausea, and others. These symptoms can range in severity and may last for several weeks or even months. It is recommended to talk to a doctor before discontinuing Venlafaxine or any other antidepressant medication. The doctor may recommend tapering off the medication slowly to reduce the risk of withdrawal symptoms.
