... felt as a kid something wasn't right. Now 5 years into menopause..it just isnt working so I switched to effexor xr. First couple of days I felt really good then I went back to being a bitch. 5 or so weeks in I increased to 150 for about a week and felt worse so I went back to the original dose. Now 2 1/2 months and I still feel bitchy like before. Should I increase my dose? Help somebody!!! thx
