308074 tn?1289687346 Is 75mg of Effexor XR to high of a dosage? I started out 3 days on 35mg of Effexor and then went right up to 75mg. I dont know if I should be using that high of a dosage. Every since I started taking it, I have been feeling REALLY exhausted. Is that from the Effexor? Also, does Effexor make you sweat? I know someone who takes it to prevent sweating, but I sweat so badly now that I take it. What is up with that? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Avatar n tn I am taking 75mg effexor xr and I stay sleepy all the time, anybody else experiencing this?
Avatar n tn Yes, whether it's Effexor or Effexor XR it's best to start at 37.5 mg daily and you can increase it after 4 days back to 75mg.
Avatar f tn I have been on Effexor XR for 5 1/2 years and about 14 days ago I started weaning off them....
Avatar m tn Has anyone tried the generic for of the regular effexor. My insurance is way more the effexor xr. The regular effexor has a generic.
Avatar n tn I have been taking 150mg of effexor xr for about 6 weeks, and have been waking every night drenched with sweat! One of the side effects is increased sweating, but this is rediculous!! This dosage has taken away almost all of my anxiety problems, and I do have some lingering side effects that I can live with, but do I have to live with night sweats???
Avatar n tn The doctor has mentioned graves disease and some side effects to this is anxiety. I have been prescribed .75mg of Effexor xr and Xanax Xr .5. At first my systoms taking the Effexor Xr by itself was shaking, nerve pain like trembling, and insomnia. So he gave me xanax to counter out some of the side effects. Every anti depressant i have taken over the past couple of years i have the same symptoms. I feel real good just taking the low dose xanax xr.
Avatar f tn Has anyone tried combining the use of medical marijuana to reduce the withdrawal from Effexor XR? My husband gets the brain shocks as well as the brain fog when he just misses a dose. He has been on 300mg for more than 10 years maybe even 15 years. Please help if anyone has accomplished withdrawal.
Avatar f tn I feel burning sensation like fever. I was on 150mg effexor xr for about two years and was anxiety free. I asked my psych that I am fine now and want to stop effexor xr. Psych advised me not to stop it but on insisting he gave me a plan to tapper down and stop. I was on Effexor XR 75mg about a month was normal and going to stop. Suddenly all the symptoms of anxiety came back. My psych tried to make effexor work again but it was not helping.
Avatar n tn I am supposed to start taking pristiq 50mg. along with effexor xr 75mg for a week and then effexor xr 37.5mg along with the pristiq for a week, and then just pristiq. I am afraid, seeing how just being off effexor for 7 hrs. put me in E.R. The Doctor said pristiq won't do that if I miss or am late on a dose. He better be right.
Avatar f tn I was given Effexor XR by my psychiatrist fisrt 75mg then up to 150mg. I got perfectly fine on effexor XR. After about two years I insisted my psch to stop effexor as I am fine now. He advised me not to stop it all your symptoms can come back. Again insisting he made me a plan to taper from 150 to 75 then stop. I was on the last month of 75mg and the symptoms started to come back. This time I was feeling uneasiness in the chest, panic attacks and others. He advised me to go back to 150mg.
Avatar m tn My anxiety got a bit better for a few years, then came back with a vengeance. I went back to the doctor and we tried Effexor XR; aside from not being able to sleep for the first few days, it didn't make me feel too bad, and eventually it helped quite a bit; I was on it for about 2.5 years with only occasional, relatively mild anxiety. During those times I took Xanax, which worked WONDERS. It really seemed to do the trick for nearly all my symptoms, even more so than the Effexor.
Avatar m tn any thoghts on effexor?
Avatar n tn I am currently on 75mg of Effexor Xr and would like to taper down to 37.5mg. History: I am now 45yrs old, but in July 2004 at the suggestion of my therapist I'd been seeing for 3 months, I saw a psychiatrist where I started my first ssri- both people said "no big deal", you'll be feeling better soon. Well, one thing quickly led to another, ended up on many drugs (5 at one time for many months) and my short term sick leave turned into LT disability.
Avatar f tn I have been on antidepressives since 2000. For the last 3 years, it has been Effexor XR...following my daughter's death, my dose was increased to 225mg/daily. Well, when my medical insurance changed...I determined that I had to switch to a generic...could no longer afford the copays. In January, my MD directed me on how to wean myself from Effexor XR...so I could begin a generic form of Celexa. My God. If this is what withdrawal is like, I am fortunate that I never abused drugs.
Avatar n tn I was given wellbutrin to try to get rid of the sexual side effects of effexor (by the way, other than that, effexor works very well-75mg XR). The thing is, I take one wellbutrin (75mg) each evening and I notice now around noon the next day that I feel "odd". In other words, am I dosing myself "up and down" by just having one (not extended release) 75mg wellbutrin each day?
Avatar m tn s one 30mg at 9 in the morning and another at 5 in the evening, of Adderall XR along with 75mg of Effexor XR. I was prescribed the Effexor. About 5 minutes after I took my second capsule of Adderall I started feeling really weird, I thought I was losing my mind. My mind was racing with thoughts, I couldn't concentrate, Muscle spasm's, and fast heart-rate. It feels like everything is going very fast. I couldn't watch TV because I had no idea what they were talking about.
