I have anxiety, and started taking effexor 5 weeks ago. I started on 37.5 for a week and than 75mg for 3 weeks.
I noticed "an itchy" feeling like I was going to breakout in a full body rash, I took benedryl and it would go away. This feeling lasted a few days and went away.
I also noticed when I would get upset, I could not control it but I would cry and cry, and "spin out".
I went to my doctors and she raised me to 150 mg, and I have been taking it for 4-5 days now... right now it seems to make me "more aware" of feelings, and emotional. I have never been one to "cry", and you would really have to push me to my limit...but now I get emotional.

I am going through a ton of business stress and my husband and I work together, and our marriage has been put to the test, so my anxiety has hightened with all of the additional stress. I also have adhd and started adderall 5 months ago.

When do I "level out" on the effexor? When you start taking a "new dose" do you feel worse, before you feel better?
