I take 225mg of Effexor XR. I have been at that dose for about 5 weeks. I was extremely tired at 150mg (my family doctor put me on this initially, and told me to stay at 150mg) I went to a pdoc and he increased the dosage to took awhile (@4weeks) for the past week I have felt GREAT! I am glad I increased it.

I too was experiencing anxiety, agitation, TIRED, and still depressed, at 150 mg. Increasing the dose has helped me a lot!!! (has been a miracle)

Hope this helped!

> > for a while I thought the FXR was working. I have been at 150 now for almost a month. I have had some good days but lately I have had some physical pain (a back ache) and now it seems the depression is taking over again. I feel tired most of the time, sad and have violent thoughts. I don't want to do anything. Has this happened with anyone else? My depression isn't as bad as it was, and I did seem to get better. I've only been on FXR for a total of 8 weeks. Do things get better and then worse if you aren't at the right dose? Is it situational? Do you think my pdoc is going to up my dose when I see her next week? Any advise on this would be great.
