Venlafaxine - almost 7 Weeks in - Help Please!

(3 Posts)

I have been taking Ven for almost 7 weeks now (first week on 37.5mg and almost full 6 weeks on 75mg once a day) for anxiety.

I have been doing great on them...up until yesterday! I woke up feeling anxious and flat; barely ate any lunch but managed most of my dinner. I didn't sleep much at all last night (my sleep has been great again up until last night) and woke this morning feeling anxious and had a dry, horrible mouth.

I don't feel quite as bad at the moment as I did this time yesterday, but I still feel a bit anxious.

My in-laws have been making a nuisance of themselves since the weekend and I think this might have stressed me out.

I don't know if it is just a blip or not. My next catch-up with my GP is actually tomorrow morning (Wed 18th) at 9am.... I don't know whether I might have to increase my dose to 150mg?

Any feedback/experience or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you! X

Hi there how are you doing? I took venlafaxine for agitated depression in 2004 and it worked a treat - only on a small dose though can't remember what!

Not been on those, but if things have been stressful with inlaws that might account for the blip. Hope your GP apt went well.
