I am starting with 2 capsules (150mg) daily tomorrow and would like to know how long it will take before I start to feel the benefit from it. My pharmacist warned me that it may make my anxiety worse before making it better. How long will this last?
It can take several Weeks before you reach therapeutic levels. That being said, you should feel "something" within 2 Weeks, Atleast I always have. And your pharmacist speaks the truth, your anxiety may (or may not) get worse before it gets better.. Effexor its a good antidepressant for many people, I've taken it for sometime now and it seems to work well for me.:^) hope this has helped.
How are you doing?
