Help! Trying to weaning off Effexor XR

I've been reading all the horror stories about effexor withdrawal, and just wondering if anyone who has been successful in going off effexor, has any suggestions for the best way to do this and continue to function in a very busy job, as a mother,etc. I've read both pros and cons about counting and removing beads. It seems to be a good way to slowly taper but the beads appear to be in several different sizes so it's difficult to judge which to remove and in what order. I've been taking 37.5 mg for several years. How slowly do you need to go? I've been removing one bead every third day and still having some headaches & muscle aches. Any suggestions would be welcome - thanks!
