Slight increase for me - any advice?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello everyone,

For a year now i have been taking 1 x 37.5 Immediate Release tabs twice a day (1 am & 1 pm). After lots of pondering this morning i have added half a tablet.

This medication has helped me in many ways, insomnia was a massive problem before Ven, it has also helped my anxiety.

I just feel that things could improve... simple as that!

My question is... do you think this extra 1/2 tab will make any difference?

      Hi Lynne,

      At the very start of taking the meds yes i did. I was on 37.5 for months and then added a P.M 37.5 and i felt ok .

      I do know that its very common to feel increased anxiety when upping the dosage, but it does improve. Presume thats why we are told to increase in low doses.

      keep us posted, i do hope it eases for you xx

      3-4 weeks i felt very anxious but that was when i first started out on Ven. The increase from 37.5 to 75 didnt affect me.

      So i only suffered at the very beginning, 3-4 weeks it took to feel relaxed again.

      Lynn, do you take the 75mg in one dose? mine is split... 37.5 am &

      37.5 pm.
