My wife was just prescribed 37.5mg yesterday to take for 1 week and then will be bumped up to 75mg. My question is does this seem like a particularly low starting dose? She has taken venlafaxine before at 75mg and responded extremely well to it. She was taken off of it severalonths ago and was doing great until the depression returned. Now she's in agony and I'm not sure why the psychiatrist didn't start her at 75mg. Thanks for your advise.
