Effexor & inconsistent response

Posted by John on April 23, 1999, at 20:07:33

I've been taking effexor (112.5 mg/day) for the last six months for depression.
It works, but it keeps falling off. I adjust the dose (with the rec. of my psychiatrist)
a fourth of tablet down and it works again, but then that falls off and I have to go up again.
I like the fact that I feel close to "normal" again, but I just wish it were consistent. Playing with the
dose every few days (sometimes I'm lucky and a specific dose will last a few weeks) is annoying.
Has anyone else had this problem?

I was on Paxil for four years, but that stopped working altogether and I am loathe
to get off effexor and try something else.
