In reply to anyone else start at 150 Effexor XR?, posted by Rainee on May 4, 2004, at 7:33:48

I assume you're talking about Effexor XR. The typical and recommended start-up is one week at 37.5 mg and the second week at 75 mg You can stay at 75 mg if you feel it's giving you the results you want or if not increase to 150 mg which is considered the dosage to get theraputic results. The start-up kits that Wyeth gives to the docs as free samples to give to patients consists of one week of meds at 37.5 mg and another week of 75 mg.
