Effexor Tolerance

Posted by Tillman on March 14, 1999, at 21:56:27

Hello all. I just discovered this site. I tried to write to Dr. Bob and he suggested I stop in.

I have been taking 75 mg. of effexor a day for 2 years. I believe it may have lost its effect. I have heard that Prozac 'poops out' after awhile and people have to increase their dosage. Has anyone had this experience with effexor?

Also recently seeing notes from people talking about the withdrawal proeblems coming off of effexor has me a littel concerned. Would people recommend getting off now ... or increasing now and withdrawing later. The drug has been a wonder drug for me. The only side effect that I have had that I'm not thrilled with is that it has effected my sensitivity. While being a people pleaser to some extent this has it's benefits, I feel bad that I am not as sensitive and compassionate as I used to be before the medication. However the way it has helped my depression has been nothing short of amazing up until recently.

Any thoughts, help would be appreciated. Thanks and good luck to us all.
