I took 300 mg for years. It had always worked for me but After bad experience dr thought it quit working and started tapering down, got to 37.5 , was really bad. New dr now has me going back up. I’m at 112.5 mg now for 3 days. Just added Ativan 1 mg 2x a day because anxiety is bad. My nervous stomach is really hard to deal with.
Effexor XR - Does anyone have a tight knot in stomach when starting VEN does it eventually go away?

Any tips? I do deep breathing and try relaxing.
Your bad feeling is really you going up and down with your Effexor I think. Let it settle for a few weeks once on your intended dose.
I too have been maxed out on Effexor then 75mg basically I’m immune to it as everyone who takes any medication eventually will be.
