> Agendas, agendas. What's with these guys? I have to question, in general, the intelligence of any doc who pushes for something that makes no intrinsic sense. And 150mg is not even a therapeutic dose.

Hi Zo,

I already noticed that most people at Psycho-Babble seem to be taking doses of 225 mg / 375 mg. But I always thought 150 mg was the minum amount of mg to be considered a therapeutic dose, if it is working for you that means. I do feel a lot better when I am on 150 mg XR, but I keep feeling that I am just a little short. I asked to be put on 225 mg or 187,5 mg, but my doc said that I was doing good enough already, so he would consider lowering my dosage rather than up it. Do you know where I could find more info about what is considered a therapeutic dose?

After reading all your responses I think I will tell him that how I feel is more important than what he is thinking about how I am doing. And I will ask him why it is such a big deal to get off the Effexor as soon as possible. After all, this whole therapy is meant to make me feel better than I used to, so why should I accept feeling bad again with a lower dosage or no meds at all? That just makes no sense. I am definitely going to be more assertive from now on. Thanks to you guys!

Take care,
