Hey, so I didn't take my venefaxine (Effexor) pill yesterday and I'm a wreck. I'm actually out and have to wait a couple hours until the pharmacy opens to get it. I'm definitely anxious, want to curl in a ball, falling apart etc. We're understaffed today and I work with kids so it's nearly essential I make it in. So I want to know, after missing a dose, how long until it kicks back in?
Hi, Falling! Missing a single dose shouldn't make a huge difference. Depending on whether you take immediate or extended release a certain amount of the drug will stay in your system for 24 ~ 48 hours so as soon as you take your dose your blood levels will begin to shoot back up to normal.
Best wishes and I hope you feel better soon! Wildcat
