Hi, I've been a big cheerleader for this medication and I feel like it's dropped me. We recently had a major life event that turned me inside out. My anxiety and panic have skyrocketed.
I can't sleep. I can't think about much else. I've lost weight. I'm such to my stomach all the time.
Ven had worked for me before going generic twice, and I'm on the brand name Effexor XR 75mg now.
I'm afraid to bump up another 37.5, or even up to 150 mg. I've read that it can have the opposite effect, but I guess I'm living that opposite effect right now.
Lexapro didn't work for me. So I can't go that route again. Zoloft, same class as Lexapro, made me a zombie, but at this point, I'll take it.
I'm doing the right things, take therapy, no caffeine, started to exercise again, but could do more of that....
Has anyone increased their dosage without any side effects?
