At one point during that 5 months my doctor increased the dose to 150mg. I was on it for three weeks with horrible anxiety. Dropped back down to 112.5mg and added Latuda. Again, horrible. Now he has put me on Klonopin and when that evens out is going to raise the Effexor back up to 150mg. He says many times you can be raised too quickly and when you go back down and stay for awhile at the lower dose then go back up again, the transition is easier. Anyone find this to be true ?
