I started 150mgs of Effexor XR 8 days ago and my anxiety has substantially become worse. I've read this is somewhat normal with this type of drug. Can anyone tell me how long this will last? I don't know at what point I should call my doctor. This is a little scary.
It usually only last the first couple of weeks. But can sometimes last 4 weeks. Give it least a few more weeks. I would still call my doctor and maybe he can give you a short term med to help with anxiety until the Effexor kicks in.
Hang in there hope it gets better for you soon :)
