Venlafaxine - What is the highest dosage that can be given if 75mg isn't working anymore?
Hi plowdenslager! The maximum dose for moderately depressed patients is 225mg/day; the dose for severely depressed patients is 375mg/day.
Since you're taking a low dose of 75mg an increase to 100 or 150mg/day would be reasonable.
Good luck and let us know what you choose to do and how it goes, okay?
