My doctor put me on 37.5mg of Venlafaxine 4 days ago, and from what I've been reading I need to be on at least 75mg to reach the therapeutic dose but my doctor hasn't said anything about upping me. Am I still going to get treatment from using this?
Also, for those that have been on that med before, these side effects suck. First 2 days I was nauseous, stomach cramps and headache. Now on day 4 I've still got the headache, my anxiety is higher to the point Ativan doesn't seem to help much, and I just have a general sense of being scared and spaced out/confused. Is this normal? Oh and forgot to add chest tightness and palpitations. Im such a medphobe, reassurance would be great lol
