... chemo, I have discussed switching to Effexor. What is the best way to switch over? My doctor didn't seem sure. He gave 3 doses a day at 75 alternate days with my Zoloft. For how long- a week, 4 weeks? My pharmacist asked me if there was any reason I wasn't prescribed extended release so that I could alternate one pill a day zoloft/effexor?
It is important that you gradually stop your Zoloft and gradually commence your Effexor. How long you alternate treatments will depend on how you respond. Keep in close contact with your doctor and talk to him if you start to feel more depressed, agitated or unwell.
Effexor is best given in divided doses - usually 2 to three times a day.
