MORE Effexor Questions UGH!!

I started on a very small dose of Effexor XR 17 days ago..........I started taking 5 balls from inside at night......I was so so on it.....then I upped it to 8 at night and I was WIRED!!!! UP all night and so dizzy and off the next day it was awful so I lowered it back to 5 last night and took a tylenol PM as I needed to sleep.......well I am still feeling wired to day and did not sleep well last night either. Will this wear off? I would think that after 2 weeks it would be getting better not worse. Anyone have any advice as if this tiny dose affects me.........good thing I did not take a full pill!!

Re: MORE Effexor Questions UGH!!

I would first talk to my doctor about taking tylenol pm along with the Effexor....don't know if that might be why you are feeling this way. These types of medications work differently for everyone, for some people adjustment period takes effect right away for others it takes a good 4 to 6 weeks. I know that when I was given effexor, I felt dizzy and completed out of it. I talked to my doctor and he immediatley took me off of it, was not for me. but do not get discouraged, it might be the one for you. But it was not for me, I simply got worse. If it is really bothering you that bad, and you don't feel you should be feeling this way, do what I did, I called my doctor.

Take care and keep us posted on how you are doing.
