effexor--would a lower dose work just as well?

Posted by fluff on November 7, 2006, at 7:55:49

I can't find any information on this on the Internet, and my GP doesn't know the answer, either. I've been on Effexor XR 150mg for 3 years for anxiety disorder; it's worked wonderfully. I know that I need to stay on meds for life, but, if possible, I would like to lower my dose of Effexor because of weight gain. I was put on 150mg by my GP because it's the average dose of what people take. Is it worth trying to go on a lower maintenance dose? Has anyone had success doing this? My biggest fear is that I will go down in dose, feel lousy again and then not respond when I go back up to 150 (sound like an anxiety disorder type of thinking?!). Any thoughts or experience with this? Thanks in advance! fluff
