Re: ULTRASENSITIVE: EFFEXOR minimal effective dosage?

venlafaxine {effexor} immediate release comes in 25mg pills. XR comes in 37.5mg. The insert says you can open capsules and sprinkle them, but I wonder if all the beads are the same size.

All psych pills have side effects, and don't mistake tolerance to side effects for a placebo or therapuetic effect.

If you took just one 25mg effexor immediate release once a day you would probably not have an even effect or enough action throughout your waking hours.

You should try something with a longer half life at a low dose if you are still compelled to stay low.

Are you in a part of the world where Strattera or Edronax can be taken? That can combat the sedation.

I take provigil to balance out my mood stabilizer, Trileptal and the sedation from Effexor XR {75mg}.

At higher doses past 150mg or 200mg Effexor's norepinephrine action is supposed to kick in to therapeutic levels {it is 4 parts to 1 serotonin to norepinephrine effect}.

good luck!
