I have been takin venlafaxine for anxiety for approx 2 yrs and has been great for me.
However since monday feel bad, nausea, dizzy in morning. Symptoms of anxiety back!
Curently moving house and starting new job.
Should I increase my dose from 187.5mg to 225mg as suggested by gp?
Thank you
Hi--that increase is acceptable. It may take from one to two weeks, though, for you to get the effect of the increase.
