I just took my first dose of Effexor XR about 7 hrs. ago, 37.5 mg. I am SOOO dizzy. It is miserable. I had been on Pristiq initially and it did not do this, however, it raised my BP and heart rate too much so I had to go off of it. Does this dizziness get better?
dizzy' Yes It does lots of these medications when you first start and even more so on the first few doses this can happen and much more even your symptoms can feel worse for the first few weeks your on this medication then once you get through that is the worst part and you gradually start to feel better right up until you get to the full benefits of this medication which is 6 to 8 weeks when you should start to feel better but many symptoms get better much sooner than that.
