Effexor has dose-dependent effects on the uptake pumps for serotonin and then norepinephrine. At 75-150 mg/day, venlafaxine is predominantly a serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI) like the SSRIs. At 300 mg/day, it produces comparable norepinephrine uptake inhibition to an NSRI such as desipramine...Your depressed brain may be lacking that norepinephrine boost gained only by a higher dose of Effexor {thus, this may be why the Effexor does not work for you right now}.
