> Robin, Just hang in there, each day. I started at 37.5 mg XR Effexor per day and had some similar feelings as you, but after 4 or 5 days I was already feeling better. However the full adjustment to the new medicine took about a week.
> Then when I increased from 37.5 to 75, I felt a little spacey as well for about a week. But it has all been worth it (I have been taking Effexor XR for about4 months now)and it has really stablized my overall mood and perception.
> I used to agonize over everything. I felt like I had to right every wrong (Don Quixote syndrome)but now everything seems more in balance.
> Stay with it!

> > Well I took one more capsul at 230 and the effect was not as bad today ...hope I can sleep tonight ...and see how things go tomorrow ...Im going to try to work tomorrow after being off for 10 days..
