You can't compare them that way, you will start out on a lower dose and work up to what you need.
I would say 225 but only because that's what the doc put me on when I switched from Cymbalta to Effexor with the same amount of Mg
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
