I take 375 mg everyday of effexor and will for the rest of my life, you might need an increase. I just know that if you go off of it go really slowly. I have experienced the problem with missing doses and it is no fun. I take extended release capsules now. I tried going off of it on my own once and it was horrible. I was dizzy and felt like I was going to fall off of the face of the earth, so be careful. I hope that you find something that works for you.'
