I found this thread from a search engine and I don't even know if it's still active, but I want to comment.

I am taking 150 mg of Effexor, and I have a problem forgetting to take my pills on the weekends, probably because my normal schedule is changed. BTW, I put all my pills for the week in a weekly pill organizer - have to, or I'd be totally mixed-up.

Anyhoo, if I don't take my Effexor for 2 days, I get very bad moods, depressed, crying, irritable, shortness of attention span, inability to concentrate, and these "zings" like electric current through my brain when I even think of something or someone that makes me angry. I remember the problems they had witih Prozac and anger/depression when weaning off too fast. I am afraid of the way I feel, especially the anger part.

I'm afraid to double-up, because my doctor said 300 was the max, and I'm on 150s. I guess I'd just better figure out a better way to take it on the weekends. I wish they had a patch!!!
