effexor xr dosage

Hi,

Just curious if there is anyone who takes effexor, and what your dosage is? I've been taking 37.5 mg for almost a week and don't feel any difference at all!

thanks

Re: effexor xr dosage

I have been taking effexor xr for over 5 yrs. I am on 225 mg a day. I haven't had a full blown panic attack since . It takes about one month for it to get into your system.. Give it a couple more weeks and if it's still not helping then call and tell the DR.

Thanks Debbie. My dr. actually increased my dosage to 75 mg this week and I think I'm starting to notice a difference. Hopefully I won't have to increase it again. Happy Halloween!

You'll start to feel better on that. I hope it works for you as well as it has been working for me.. I hope you do ok on the 75mg, but if not always go back to the Dr. and NEVER stop taking it without his help.. You be ok and if you need to talk I'm here. tc Digg

Thank you!! I am starting to feel better, very slowly. I'll give it a few weeks (I guess???) before following up with the dr.

Yeah they say it takes about 1 month to get into your system. I know it's hard but be patient.. It will work and you feel like a new person.. keep me posted.
