adamie,

If you're tolerating the side-effects okay, you shouldn't have any problems going up to 75mg early, and from there up to 150mg within a few days. My pdoc told me that Effexor isn't even effective (in the vast majority of people) for depression at doses below 150mg. You might have to (as I think I might) go up to 225 or 300mg before you start to feel truly well. Venlafaxine doesn't have much effect on norephinephrine reuptake until you're taking 225mg+ anyhow, and I know you've hypothesized in the past that your symptoms would be better treated by noradrenergic drugs.

Good luck, hang in there, and remember: mothers often fear change (even for the better :) ).
