I've just started Effexor XR this past week. I was on Lexapro before that. I've also taken Zoloft, Paxil and some other Sri drug. I'm also on klonipins (2 mgs twice daily, or as needed). They've also tried me on xanax, trazadone, zyprexa (devil drug!), valume and some sort of drug that's like a stronger version of benadryl. Oh, I've also had to be put on Ambien to sleep through-out all of these other meds.
I feel as if I'm just a guine pig for the pharmasutical companies. But since starting the Effexor XR, I've had better consentration while reading, eaiser time falling asleep at night, easier time staying awake during the day. Although, I'm still having the sexual side affects that I had with all the meds.
I've heard that they aren't as bad with Effexor, so I'm hoping that part will go away, at least a little bit. But it makes it very difficult to fully climax.
I guess that is my only complaint about the drug.
Hopefully things work out with this one. All the other drugs I've tried have either been too much or just stopped working.
Oh yeah, you wanted to know dosages...I'm on 75.5 right now. That's what he started me on when we switched me from Lexapro to Effexor.
Hope I stay on this track. Maybe I"ll be able to walk into a store alone without my sunglasses on! :cool:

[QUOTE=annarbor]I am so happy to finally start hearing good reports about Effexor XR----I have tried Prozac, Lexapro and Buspar and this has been the very best. I take Wellbutrin 100mg w/it. I take 150mg of Effexor XL. It is the first time I have been able to actually read abook (concentration) How much do most of you take? Tell me how it's helped you??[/QUOTE]
