Hi I'm 25, I was put on effexor xr 75mg 8yrs ago. It worked really good .. like 2 months ago I started noticing I was getting irritable and sweating a lot (way more than usual) . I had a panic attack one day and been depressed ever since (in my head can't get out of it, feel alone even around ppl) so my doctor upped my dose to 150mg . No gradual uptake . It's day 11 and I'm not suicidal but I'm still depressed and now getting really anxious and derealization . Is this a good sign it's working or should I go back to my regular dose ? . I'm wondering if my hormones are out of wack because it's like a month after I turned 25 , I've been moody and sweating heavily .. need help please!
