venlaxafine increase

Posted , 2 users are following.

my doctor has just increased my venlaxifine from 150 mg to 225mg , i have been on 150mg for two weeks now ,still feel depressed and anxiety is quite high, is anyone else on 225mg and did you find any relief , dont want to keep going up and not find it has any improvement , as it will be harder to come down , he said it is to level out the spikes but i feel as if it isnt doing anything, i was on venlaxafine 75mg for about 8 years but i felt it help but didnt do anything for the anxiety

    I've been on 225mg venlafaxine for more than 6 years. Very successful for a while, then had to add in mirtazapine too, since then stable and well. Now reducing the mirtazapine because been fine for a year.
