Hi there


Can you explain a bit more?  Are you asking how long it takes to get a supplement out of your system or your Effexor?  If you are thinking of stopping any type of medication please don't stop it cold turkey as there can be some serious withdrawal symptoms.  This is especially true of Effexor.


Here is the official Effexor website so you can read the information there.


On this drug site you can also see user reviews of this drug for treating anxiety.


Hope this helps some.  Let us know if you need further assistance.
