    I didnt know that - any long term implications?



    I urge you not to remain on 5mg for an extended period as this may increase the risk of the med pooping out.
    I went back to 10mg today - Doing ok, got a bit of lock jaw and very sweaty hands but otherwsie ok.
    (BTW - what does pooping out mean )

    The med stops working. SSRIs and MAOI class ADs are more prone to poop-out (tachyphylaxis) than SNRIs (maybe not venlafaxine) and TCAs.
