I don't know about any plateaus. I've only been taking Effexor for 2 months presently at 112.5 mg. I suspect my pdoc is going to increase the dosage which was increased the last time. I didn't feel any benefits from Effexor for a minimum of 3 to 5 weeks after beginning treatment or increasing the dosage.
My therapist told me that Effexor will not stop you from feeling anything which is good in my opinion. I feel angry, frustrated, tired, lonesome, etc.,etc.. But it does stop my depression causality dead in it's tracks. And I also feel much less anxious around people. There are days in which
I feel absolutely great! Even with the side effects I feel fortunate to have Effexor.
