Common Questions and Answers about Venlafaxine get high


i am on 450 mgs venlafaxine, 150mg quatipine at night and have prn 3x .25 quatipine during the day. venlafaxine isn't working anymore. I have been given 2 options.. option 1. taper very slowly over a very long period of time and take other meds to stablize me, option 2. go back to the psych ward and under supervision come off venlafaxine which then is going to be replaced by another anti dep.
I'm wondering about Extended release Effexor / venlafaxine as to whether this could have an additional benefit. Can one also combine the two due to them being different doses as GP proposing max XL with additional 'top up' venlafaxine. Also taking 5-HTP, Lithium Oronate & Omega 3 Fish oil with high doses of Active ED as will take / try anything to get me through and back to being a nicer / fun person again who's able to be socially and professioanl flexible and confident.
I can't remember the last time I've gone a whole day without having a panic attack. My doctor recently put me on 75mg Venlafaxine and I now wake up in the middle of the night (I tak my meds in the morning) in a panic. I'd like to know if this is normal? And if Venlafaxine really helps with anxiety? I've been on other antidepressant that claim to help with anxiety as well and they just made me feel numb.
should I switch to Venlafaxine or give Sertraline one last try this upcoming week and see if the symptoms get better? I'm just feel really frustrated right now because I don't want to go through another adjustment period again, and having to face more side effects again. I even thought about slowly weaning off Sertraline, thinking that since I'm not going to college anymore I'll still feel a lot calmer and may not need the anti depressants at all.
When I got my last prescription I was given viepax and today was given venlafaxine hydrochloride. I have had low mood since changing even though my GP says that venladaxine is the active ingredient in all of them. Can anyone help?
I am 24 years old, after severe depression/mania/psychosis from age 12-20 I tried many Antidepressants/mood stabilizers/anti psychotics and even ECT(with no effect), I finally got the right balance of 225mg of Venlafaxine in the morning(8am) and 300mg of Lamotrigine at night(8pm). I have been stable with limited mania/depression and no psychotic features for 6 years now.
I am reasonably fit and I walk for 30 mins every day. I have a high resting heart rate of 117. I am not sressed or anxious, however I was put on Venlafaxine (150mg) for depression a long time ago now - 18 months. Can you advise the reason for my heart rate, please?

My primary doctor said it is nothing to worry about since it isn't too high... it is not a fever... but it is really annoying and uncomfortable and I can't possibly be the only one who has this problem??? Clearly something is differnt than before or not functioning as well... what could it be???

Blood work was done and it showed that my cortisol was very high and my ferritin was either very high or low I can't remember. But my iron levels were normal. The CBC showed that my red blood cells were small and missshaped along with very few new cells. T4 levels were normal and my thyroid is not painful or inlarged. Plus my blood pressure used to be really high and I was on 3 different blood pressures pills to control it.
Please please see your doctor so that the both of you can figure out what is the best course of action for you. by the way, why are you wanting to get off the effexor, do you have a plan or med that you are planing on changing to.
I'm 62. I drink very little. I smoke some weed I get high. Here I'm by myself. I ejaculate only spurts of water. I'm considered bi polar and take many medications that could be the problem.
At around midnight Michael took my BP. The first one was 130/55 - That is very high for me, never get to the 130's territory. It was a few minutes after I came up a flight of stair. So we waited a few more minutes, and the next reading was 128/55 - A bit better. Another explanation might be that I was terribly tired/exhausted, with nausea. This AM at 0800 it was 118/60 - Much better! So I guess it is OK to continue with the Midodrine q6.
I have been on venlafaxine 150 4 weeks this coming Monday. I have been running fever and sick at my stomach. had a lot of constipation that is bad makes me have real hard cramps.

I told her about all this and that my stomach brning was much worse she said mybe I should get off the 150 and go back to the 75mg. but the doctor was not in he was gone all week.
I usually take Effexor (venlafaxine) tablets. When i picked up my prescription last time I was given Viepax instead of Effexor. Presumably these are a cheaper generic version but are the ingredients identical? Eloise.
But my blood pressure is still high after withdrawl of venlafaxine? I stopped the medicine and 4months over but my blood pressure is still high? How long my blood pressure is going to high and when it comes to normal stage?
1 tablet - 75 XR 1 tablet - 150 XR 1 tablet - 37.5 venlafaxine hydrochloride (??) The thing is that in the last months the pharmacy didn't get the 75 XR for some reason so I was given only the other two. Well, I haven't paid much attention to that and I just started cutting the pills "happily". That is until today, at the pharmacy, when the pharmacist told me I can't do it because it nullifies the extended release effect and pour it in my bloodstream uncontrolled.
I so badly want to get better. I am also about 20 days off Tramadol. I almost relapsed to get some sleep. I would love to hear from anyone who is taking effexor. Thank you!!!
Hi, 1. How often do some of you get palpitations and/or an increased heart-rate?...Daily, couple times week, month, etc?...My worst episodes are when i seem to have an increased heart rate (90-110bpm) for several hours...I've been thru the ringer w/testing (EKG's, echo, blood work, chest x ray, 6 visits to cardiolgist since 2009)....All tests came back normal... 2. Does anyone take an anxiety medicine?.....My regular physician mentioned some, one was called Venlafaxine, another was Adavant??
Yes Erin is right, i need to add that it was under my doctor's supervision that i took Diazepam at the beginning of my Venlafaxine treatment to combat my anxiety until the Venlafaxine started working. Sorry, i didn't mean it to sound so casual, it is easy to misinterpret tone when you're writing instead of speaking isn't it?
I am taking one capsule effexor xr(venlafaxine) 150mg & Neuxam(alprazolam) 0.5 mg 1 & 1/2 tablet at night prescribed by Psychiatrist for about 12 days for anxiety and my condition has improved a little bit as I am starting to have a good mood.My urine color has changed to dark and I have nause.Before starting the medicine I had upset stomach, gas & acidity.Is my dark urine color due to the medication? should I stop the medicine?
I was diagnosed with post-natal depression in December 1998 and have been struggling through on various levels of Effexor-XR (75mg, then 150) and I have now been put on 225mg. I always felt a little "edgy" on the effexor, but since my dosage was upped 2 days ago i've been practically "speeding". My doctor also prescribed a small (2.
Thank you for your cautionary tale. I also spent a period on fairly high dose Venlafaxine XL (225mg) about ten years ago. I vividly remember the awful side-effects that would develop within a few hours of missing a dose and would evaporate rapidly when I took the medication. I used to get a 'swishy head' as well: it was as though i'd just gone over the top of a roller-coaster and begun to drop rapidly, except the sensation lasted hours instead of seconds and was crippling rather than exciting.
I'm shooting for 29% because my YMCA trainer told me that's the high end of the healthy range for females my age. I got rid of my high blood pressure, I'm no longer on medications for it. My high cholesterol, hyperlipidemia, is gone now, too. Pre-diabetic symptoms are gone. Even though I'm still overweight, I accept and even pretty much like my body now.
I'm currently taking both Effexor XR (Venlafaxine XR) and Lithium Carbonate to treat co-morbid my mental illnesses. I'm just wondering, for anyone taking Effexor XR to treat their Generalized Anxiety Disorder, how do you find it has helped you, in what ways do you think it is inefficient, and what sort of side effects or issues have you had with it?
Depending on what you are taking it for people sometimes need to go up higher to get a therapeutic effect, I have known folks to go as high as 50 mg a day, although obviously those are both very unusual and situations where you would have to go up to that dose very gradually...
Right now, my pdoc and I decided that it might be beneficial to try a med washout period. So, I have been trying to get off Effexor for the last few weeks. I had been on 75mg since November. I started by alternating 75mg one day with 37.5mg the next, then 37.5mg for one week, then 37.5mg every other day. I didn't make it a week with 37.5mg every other day because the withdrawal was so bad. So now I am taking 25mg generic immediate-release venlafaxine for one week, then 12.
