How long should I take Effexor? Forever???

Posted by John2222 on October 12, 2002, at 21:51:14

This is a perplexing question: Any idea how long to continue taking Effexor XR?

I've been taking 112.5 mg/day for past 6 months and it has been working great. I feel so much better and I'm having very few side effects any more.

So, when am I cured? After another 6 months? Do the brain chemistries get rebalanced and then get "cured"? Or is this a lifetime treatment to keep seratonin in check?

(I'm 58 male with previous mild/moderate episodes of depression a couple times.)
