Hello, I've also been having issues... I was prescribed venlafaxine immediate 75mg twice per day and I was doing really well .... then I was informed that the immediate release version was out of stock.. so i was put on 75mg prolonged release... within a few days I was suffering withdrawl symptoms and a a drop off in my mood.. so I gave it a few days and contacted my GP who said I may need a higher dosage so I went up to 150mg prolonged release once per day... the withdrawl symptoms went away but I was left feeling like I was starting allover again on the drug.. lots of side effects.. more anxiety and generally not feeling well... I gave it almost two weeks and then informed the dr that I wasn't getting on with the prolonged release and it felt totally different to me... anyway I decided as my local chemist was out of stock id try a few other chemists to see if there was any stock of the immediate release around... I manged to find someone with stock and so got a new prescription for 75mg twice per day... so I began taking them... the problem is I haven't managed to get back to the way I was feeling on the immediate release before all of this... so I'm a bit stuck as to what to do now... do I now need to increase the dosage... or am I sort of starting allover again... because that what it feels like.. my anxiety is allover the place again and my mood isn't great due to this... any help much appreciated..
