Re: Low dose venlafaxine basically an SSRI?

Historically I've almost never gotten headaches.

When I took atomoxetine last year, I had regular headaches, particularly when waking up in the mornings. I reckon that this was from the noradrenergic effect of the atomoxetine, since that's mostly what atomoxetine does.

Now on venlafaxine, I'm starting to get headaches again. This suggests to me that I *am* experiencing a noradrenergic effect from venlafaxine, even though many sources claim that this only starts happening at around 225 mg/day.

Of course, the articles that Linkadge posted, show that there may be significant noradrenergic effects at lower doses too.
