I just started taking Effexor 75mg a week ago. It is the beginner/initial start of the medication. The doctor said I would most likely goto 150mg daily after 2-3 weeks. I take it at night. I previously tried Lexapro 10mg and that SSRI did not work for me. It caused me to have a medication induced depression. I became so exhausted and sleepy (sleeping 9-11 hours nightly, no drive, no motivation, couldn't function, only took it 2 weeks)
I am hopeful that this SNRI will be the one that works with my chemistry.
I take it at night since that is when the serotonin and your brain refresh while resting.
