Hi, nodin! You were on a pretty high dose of Cymbalta and there's no way your physician will start you on an *equivalent* dose of Effexor!
You'll probably start Effexor at 75 - 150mg which is the starting dose range and increase by 75mg over time ~ IF you need to. Effexor may work better for you at these lower doses than Cymbalta did at the higher range dose.
All antidepressants work slightly differently in your brain so there's no comparison,as kaismama said.
Best wishes, WCV
