Hello everyone. I'm suffering on a severe depression with anxiety for many years. I tried a lot of medications, but nothing really helped. But increasing effexor after taking it 4 months 150 mg to 250 mg changed my life for the following weeks. It was so incredible. My depression was completely vanished. After increasing it to 300 mg became manic and I stopped taking effexor. I felt still very good for 1 month without taking anything. Then the depression came back. I took effexor(250mg) again for 4 weeks and then I gave up. After trying another medication, that didn't help, I'm trying effexor now again already for 1 week, because my new doc told me that I should wait longer. How possible is it that effexor will work again for me? How long do I have to wait until I will work?
Update: I'm now taking Effexor for 10 weeks and I still can't notice any improvements. :(
I visited several docs. One doc suggested me to stop taking it after 4 weeks. Another one said It could also take 3 -4 Months. I'm very confused. Why shouldn't it work again? I only had two small breaks, where I didn't take it for one month. How likely is it that it won't work again? I would be very grateful for your help.
