    I agree with Maca, 2 weeks is optimistic, it's likely to be 4-5 weeks, although as with everything about ADs, YMMV. The only predictable thing about them is their unpredictability.

    Re: How you doing guys

    Out of the blue my Anxiety has gone through the roof and I was doing so well.

    Not gone up on Ven yet but see dr on the 20th. Been sleeping bad and wretching first thing, feel like a live wire now not wanting to goto work just want evening to come so I can sleep.
    Really shocked that this has happened over 2 days.

    Sorry to hear youíre having a rough couple of days, any ideas what set it off? In fact itís probably best not to try figuring out why, try to accept itís just a blip and it will pass xx

    Iím still getting the odd moment when Iíll start to focus on how Iím feeling and then the agitation will ramp up a bit but Iím not feeling too bad today. The last couple of days Iíve just felt stoned and really tired so hope that wears off soon.

    Yes im sure it will fade but just disappointed as I was doing ok. I was tired over the weekend so had a nap in the afternoon on Saturday, I haven't done that in ages.

    Onwards and upwards

    Are these typical symptoms when your anxiety levels surge?

    Yes always but this normally peaks after 3 or so days, today its not so intense and I have started eating again but can't eat until evening which normally is a calmer time of day for me.

    Ah, okay. I was wondering whether there might have been an infection which could account for the anxiety spike, but seems not.

    Yes its the same old thing Panic DU, no change in my reaction to Anxiety spikes. It has calmed down so I can function at work etc so will see how it goes over the next week or so, im just reluctant to go up in Ven dose as GP suggests as I can't keep going up each time I have an Anxiety spike.

    I agree that simply increasing the dose every time there's an occasional anxiety spike can be a slippery slope that often achieves little, however, it might be considered if the dose is at the low end of the therapeutic range, or if they occur frequently. How much venlafaxine are you currently on and how often do anxiety levels go haywire?

    Re: How you doing guys

    Im on 225mg slow release for about 5 mths now with good results. The Anxiety is always in the background but I can function so much better before I changed from Mirt to Ven it has been a life saver. This was the first real panic anxiety since I went to 225mg so have done pretty well really.
