switching from Remeron to Effexor

Posted by jojo2 on October 22, 2003, at 15:50:23

Has anyone tried to switch from Remeron to Effexor? I am currently taking 15 mg of Remeron but I still have many symptoms of depression. I tried 30 mg per day but the side effects were pretty bad (I gained 5 pounds in 5 days). My doctor has recommended switching to 75 mg Effexor-XR per day. She says that I can stop the Remeron and go right on a half dose of effexor for 2 weeks and then to a full dose (75 mg). I am scared of the possible side effects of Effexor and especially scared of the withdrawal effects if I start taking it and then have to quit.
