I just recently went on Effexor ER 2 weeks ago. I started off at 150mg, but after 1 week they bumped it up to a total of 225 mg. I am not sure if it is working or not, How long does it take until I see results? They also put me on a mood enhancer 2xs a day at 25 mg. It is called lamotrigine and I also take well-brutrin at 150 mg 1x a day. I am going to start seeing a consulor this coming up week. I feel like I am loosing my mind, and I think about dying. I do not know what to do, any help will be helpful. Everybody asks me what is wrong, but I do not even know. I lost my dad 7 years ago and I lost my job 3 months ago, and my daughter is stress about school, and my husband might not have a job after this year of school, the school might close, So, I am not sure if it is one of these things or something else. Please help. I also feel like I am the only one out there that is going through this. I am not a pataint person. I am not sure if i am on the right meds or if they need to adjust them.I I had some panic attacks about 20 years ago when I went through my divorce and I feel that this is different this time. I fear about me doing something stupid, and I do not want to die.
