My pdoc recently increased my effexor ER from 150 to 225 after I came in one day and was just having a really bad time. It has probably been about 3 weeks now. First week all I noticed was a decrease in appetitie, which was welcomed. Last week I did my very first group therapy session, which I think will be really good for me. But basically for the better part of the week I just felt lost. I haven't felt this way in so long. Then Ive been up and down but today I found myself returning to old habits like cutting. I really don't want to give up, I know meds take time. But.....Will it get better? Was this the right decision? Effexor has worked well for me so far..Was I just having a bad day and he attacked it with meds? I know 225 mg starts to hit your norepineprhine (sp) and I already take adderall 15 mg ER for ADD. Is my brain being zapped or do I need to wait it out? I don't want to cause my doc to wave me into a hold or anything.....I can make it if it gets better....but will it or is this bad? Thanks yall.
