I have just started on Effexor XR (75mg) today along with 30mg mirtazapine. I’m currently an inpatient on a psychiatric ward! I am praying this works for MDD Any success stories PLEASE?
Has anybody had success with Effexor XR and Mirtazapine?

I have found Effexor to be the best I’ve ever had, great for depression and panic attacks.
I’m on 150mg per day but if I have too much drama and stress in my life I have to go on 300mg daily for the anxiety.
The only thing you have to watch is do not run out because if you’re late or miss a capsule you will start to get what’s known (in the Effexor community) as brain zaps. They can be unpleasant, once you start getting brain zaps it can can take a few hours for them to stop after taking a capsule being as the med is slow release.
Another tip is only use the genuine brand as in the past some brands released too fast leading to premature zaps.
I’m sorry I can’t advise anything regarding the other med you’re on as I only need the Effexor, in another month you will be a new person.
Good luck and cheers - Bruce.
Yes - when taken as follows:
MORNINGS: 150mg + 75mg EFFEXOR-XR (locally named "E F E X O R"-XR).
EVENINGS: 30mg Mirtazapine (locally named "AXIT").
Anxiety and depression have been reduced to Normal Levels (whatever normal is - but it works for me).
But be warned - this is for ME - a 64 year old male with recurrent depression and anxiety - and three documented full on break downs.
Discuss with your medical professionals and do no self dose. Just saying.
This is a highly effective combination. It is known as "California Rocket Fuel". I've been on the combo and it worked really well for me for a while.
