Hi there,

Just my experience, and I'm not a doctor:

But I felt absolutely lousy on Effexor XR until I reached 150 mg. I am now at 300 mg, and it has been the best AD if had since Remeron (which is such a shame that it causes sooo much weight gain). I think until you reach 150 mg on Effexor XR, you are only impacting upon the Serotonin. Higher than that dose starts impacting upon the norepinephrine. I actually felt an immediate difference between 75 mg and 150 mg, and I take it first thing in the morning as it does make my insomnia much worse if I take it during the day or at night.

Ask your doctor for any advice, though, as we are only the guinea pigs here. *smile*

God bless,
