Hi! My pdoc had me on 450mg of Effexor and then dropped me to 300mg...I have been on 300mg for about a year,,,have moved, got new doctors, nad am getting the hell off of the Effexor--I am only down to 225mg, but my dr. is dropping me slowly.
I wondered why everything I eat is going right through me and I have no appetite....dropping weight, which I don't mind, BUT,,,, I guess it could be coming off Effexor and going on Lamictal,,,,who the hell knows??
Anyway, if you are agitated, restless, irritable, cna't sit still--all of that is how I have felt for so long...didn't reallize it was from the meds...just recently dx with BP II and now I know this crap has been driving me nuts...
Defintely talk to your doc about that---one of the warning labels on my effexor says if agitation, confusion, irritability persist, contact doctor---wish pdoc would have told me that sooner......
However, it is what it is,,,,I have a new pdoc and I am coming off thank GOD!!
Good luck and let me know how things go!
