switching from paxil cr to effexor

Postby quinnn » Sun May 13, 2007 1:11 pm

I'm currently on Paxil CR 25mg & will be switching to effexor soon. What is the equivalent dose of effexor?

Has anyone had to switch from paxil to effexor and how did it go? Did you have any side effects or problems with the switch?

Paxil to Effexor

Postby Dr. K. Eisele » Tue Jun 19, 2007 11:02 pm

Dear Quinnn:

Effexor 150 mg would be roughly equivalent. I haven't personally switched anyone from Paxil to Effexor, but if I were to do so, I wouldn't particularly expect any problems.

I hope the switch goes well for you!
As always, if you feel like harming yourself or anyone else in any way, you must immediately call 911, or go to the nearest emergency room.

Please remember that I cannot make a diagnosis based on internet communication.
