They will up my dose on Tuesday to 75mgXL. Last night woke up at 3:00 am. Took a Xanax and fell back to sleep. Do many people take something to help them sleep while waiting for the AD to kick in? Usually melatonin helps me fall asleep but not last night. I am eating again but this anxiety is awful. Need some reassurance this will get better. Can’t remember how long it takes, started sertraline 23 years ago as an impatient and worked until a few months ago?
Lynn 351 If they did not tell you this is very common with the Medications like Effexor XR when you first start it that it takes at least 2 weeks to get these side effects to settle down. And things get better from there on. It is just at the start that some of the symptoms get worse when you first start it but that is for only the first week or two. Hope this helps you.
