Lightbulb Effexor-xr 225mg

Hi, just a note asking if anyone is currently taking Effexor-XR at 225mg once daily for Depression, Anxiety, and/or Social Phobia like I am?

How do you find it?

It seems to work better than Paxil with fewer side effects for me.

Anyone with feedback would be cool...

Thanks.
Nick

I tried 75mg of effexor and it did nothing for me. I have heard of people that have good sucess with it though.

Good luck I hope it works well for you.

Hey, thanks for the feedback.

Did you notice that in the start of Effexor-xr you were quiet and wanted or felt like you wanted be alone as well as feeling a bit anxious?

I think the effexor or effexor XR is an individual thing.

I've tried both now, and find that the plain Effexor works best for me.
But I've heard others say that Effexor XR works better.

Guess it's trial and error.

I've been on Effexor for about three years now, and want to get off it. Or see how I would feel without it. But it's a real tough drug to wean off.
