Effexor XR 300mg down to 225mg back to 300mg

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?
