Follow-Up Post RE: Start-Up Symptoms of Effexor XR

Posted by CA 2 NJ on May 2, 2007, at 13:44:03

Hey there. I am now wondering if maybe I'm just feeling the "normal" start up side effects that I didn't feel with taking 37.5mg? Because it's been hours since my last dose (which I took all 75mg again) and I still don't feel all that wonderful.

Does anyone know what the startup symptoms are of taking Effexor XR? Any experiences? Please, I would love to know as I need to know what to expect as I'm soon planning on traveling cross-country and won't be able to if I feel this way.

> Hello all. I just changed the way I'm taking My Effexor XR. I am now taking it all in the morning rather than 37.5 in the am & pm.
> I've noticed since I started dosing this way that I wake up feeling really weird. Even before it's time for my next dose.
> I believe the XR formulation has a half-life of like 10 hours or something. So if that's the case, does that mean I might be experiencing a bit of withdrawals?
> I like the energy taking it all at once gives me as I have actually gotten more accomplished these past few days than I have in months. But I don't like waking up to this either!
> I'm thinking maybe I should go back to 37.5 2x a day for 2 weeks and then taking 75mg in the morning and 37.5 in the evening. So that way I have a steady 75mg in my system. Does that sound right or make sense?
> I could really use some help here as I feel yucky and just want to go back to bed. Or go vomit. I feel out of it and it's a weird feeling which I don't at all like.
> Sounds to me like I'm experiencing a case of withdrawal between doses. That doesn't surprise me as I'm always one who has to take XR versions of meds at least 2x a day.
> So what do you suggest? And what do you think is happening? I really need some input as I feel cruddy and just yesterday I felt so good! :(
> Thanks everyone. Take care and have a great day!
> Hugs,
> CA 2 NJ
