Efexor-XR

Post by logical-cents on Fri Jul 03, 2009 9:00 am

Dosage has been doubled now. Doc said to keep taking the one in the morning like I've been doing then take another one at night. When I take the other one at night though I feel really teary-eyed and like I'm gonna burst into tears at everything. Thinking of taking the two in the morning (used to take 5 of them every morning few years ago) but am afraid it will bring back the nausea. Soooo does anyone have a cheap easy effective way to cure nausea??

Nausea is the reason I gave up on that medication... I was on 75mg a day and I just felt constantly sick and bloated.

People at the time told me ginger was a good way of dealing with it... but to be honest I just couldn't tolerate those pills at all. Good luck.

Thanks jaffa, yea I was on 75mg, has now gone up to 150mg, but also if I take one at night it's like it wakes me up and then I can't sleep. I hate taking these pills as well but have found they are the only ones that actually work once the dose is right. One other ones worked (Fluox/Prozac) but I couldn't live or work with the constant jumpiness/shaking/panicky feeling etc as it is even though I haven't been on that one for around 5 months I still get panicky and jumpy.

*sigh* can't win any damn way and it feels like taking the two are making me feel worse. If I take the 2nd one at night (like the doctor said) I get more sensitive and I can't sleep (this is taking it at around 5pm). If I take the two in the morning I still get more sensitive but I'm also getting more nervous/panicking, it's damn useless, taking the second one was meant to HELP me not send me further down, but if I go back to just the one I still won't be able to cope. Really don't know what to do.

Hi wizza

The ones I have are only 75mg which is why I take two of them.

Thing is this med has worked for me in the past with great results, although admittedly I was on 375mg a day, am on 150 at moment, slowly starting to pick up a bit now sort of. Was at doc other week to get another prescription and talk about it, and we're giving it another 6 weeks, after that he will look at changing it. Dunno what he'll put me on next though. Have been on quite a few with no results.
