> > Exactly. I didn't think I had that until I went from 225 up to 300 & back down to 225mg of Effexor. I thought things were difficult to do because I am fat & lazy. 300mg of Effexor felt great! I could get stuff done! going back to 225mg has been a bit of a bummer. :/
> Panda, you are so knowledgable and resourseful and accurate when troubleshooting the problems of others, I can't believe you haven't found a way to maintain the 300mg. What exactly do you experience when you increase the dosage?

Thanks for the praise Scott :) I don't think my advice is that good!

300mg boosted my blood pressure a little, which was no drama, but it did bad things to my memory. The longer I stayed at 300, the worse it got, I gave up after 4 weeks. I am waiting to see an endocrinoligist, get to see him this coming friday. I maybe a little hypothyroid(high TSH, average T3 & T4 levels) & I am hoping that a little Thyroxine will do the trick. I'll probably get my testosterone & cortisol tested too.

I am hoping to augment my Effexor enough that I can drop down to 150mg, after experiencing bad brain fade at 300mg I realise that I'm actually having very mild memory problems at 225mg. If thyroxine doesn't work I would like to try a little Reboxetine or Nortriptyline, but I doubt that my doc's are going to allow me to take three AD's at the same time.
