I've been 75mg of effexor going on 8 weeks, I have taken paxil 40 mg for 13 years and gained 100lbs, when visiting the new doc he pulled me off paxil and put me on this effexor... I've list 40 lbs and feel good about myself for this, BUT! I still get anxiety when driving by myself and going to stores out of my town, do I need to give this pill at 75mg more time? Or go in and ask for it to be increased? I'm tired of the way I get anxious... any feedback would be great thank you!!!
