Hi guys I recently lowered my dose from 112.5 of Effexor to 75mg due to headaches. I started to notice after a week that my anxiety in the morning has returned. I'm now back up again on day 6 and still feel lousy. So do you think it will take as long to get back to feeling better as when I first started?
Dogloverof2; No it should not take as long as in the start of this medication to reach where you were not having the anxiety.Don't know how long you have been on Effexor But most the time the side effects get less with continued use. And make sure you check with the doctor if you go down in dose.With this medication, you have to take your time droping down in dose or you have all kinds of side effects. Hope you get to feeling better very soon. Chuck1957

Will upping Effexor XR dosage from 75mg to 150mg show any benefit? And if so how long would it take?
