I have been on effexor xr 112 mgs symptom free for 6 months. I have my anxiety back. I am so upset. Will an increase of 150 work or would it perhaps be higher. I am seeing dr. in two week. How long will it take for it to work. Has anyone been through this. Thank you. I am beside myself.
Its made in 150 mg capsules, that is used very often . How did you even get on that dose? You're on it already on it, so an increase shouldn't take long to level out.
The Dr will decide on what to do with the dosage, from the time of the change about 2-3 weeks to adjust to it.
Has your doctor prescribed the 150mg dosage? You say you have an appointment in two weeks. Are you saying you want to increase the dosage to 150mg without your doctor's say so? I was on 150mg daily for 9 years and it took away my depression and anxiety. Wait to talk to your doctor before you increase. If he suggests you do, it should not take long for your body to accept the higher dosage.
I felt better right away when I went up to 150mg. This is a good dose to be on for the positive effects.
I went to the Doctor and he advised me to gradually up it to 225 mgs of effexor xr. Now I am so worried as I have read that it can raise your bp at high doses and most people have significant withdrawal. I am hoping that if it works, that I will be able to go back to 75 mgs as a maintenace dose.
