I have been taking Effexor XR 225mg for 3 years. I January I spoke to my doctor about adding something to help "lift" my mood. He then increased my Effexor XR to 300mg. After 2 months on the higher dose I really felt no change so my doctor and I decided to go back down to 225mg. I had such terrible withdrawal symptoms after 5 days that my doctor told me to go back up to the 300mg. I have now been on the 300mg dosage again for 7 days. When should I start to feel back to normal again?
