My doc increased my dose from 150mg to 225mgs and I noticed increased anxiety the day I increased. Is it normal to feel more anxiety the same day you increased the dose? I'm not sure if it's the increase or I'm just having regular anxiety. Has anyone else experienced this? How long did it last? This is terrible. Thanks.
Hi, Vanilla! Experiencing more anxiety with a dosage increase IS normal and generally only lasts a few days to a week or two. But to experience it on the first day is unlikely. Is it possible that your anxiety stems not from the actual increase of the dosage but to anticipation of potential problems and side effects?
At any rate it shouldn't last long and you should do fine!
Best wishes, Wildcat
Hi vanilla, my Doc recently increased My Effexor from 75 to 112.5 it was done very slowly as I had a bad reaction to an increase of an ssri. Has your anxiety settled now?? Mine was terrible the last 2 days
