Hi everyone- I have been taking Effexor now for 2 1/2 weeks, starting at 75 for about 6 days (it worked right away-too well for it to just be a placebo) then it faded away. My doc had me go to 150 and the same thing is happening. I would appreciate any help or advice! Has anyone had this happen? I know 2 1/2 weeks isn't that long on this med and hoping these brief phases of feeling better are a good sign? Thank you for any input!!
