Re: Question about effexor dosage

Hi there. I've been on Effexor since December. I started on 37.5mg... I was on that for about 2 months, because I had a pretty strong reaction to it. Then I went up to 75mg for 3 weeks, and now I'm on 112.5mg. So far so good

Re: Question about effexor dosage

I'm at 75 mg. I started about 10 days ago. Side effects are starting to decrease and I may be feeling slightly calmer, but it's hard to say this early on.

Re: Question about effexor dosage

I take 300mg a day for depression and anxiety. I also take geodon which is an antiphycotic because my depression turned into phycosis and xanax for anxiety.

Re: Question about effexor dosage

Hello. I am currently taking 300 mg. of Effexor XR each day. I see my psychiatrist next week and am not sure what will happen. I would describe my personal response to the Effexor XR as partial. I am functioning better than I was but I still feel psychologically like crap. I would describe myself as a partial responder. I suspect my dosage will be increased or something will be added to it to augment it. Everybody's system is different. I have a friend that has been on Effexor XR for a while now and she thinks it is the greatest thing ever. She went through several antidepressants till she found the right one for her. Good luck and I hope it helps.

Re: Question about effexor dosage

I am up to 150mg a day. This is my first antidepressant and I'm not sure if it has helped my mild depression. I refuse to go any higher on the dosage because it makes me extremely jittery and blurs my vision. I'm too apprehensive to go off it and get use to something else.
