  • Hi honey im on 300mg venlafaxine and ive also got propanalol that I take ive been on them 16 years and they no longer work for me either my dr has given me sertraline now aswell and i have to take 150mg of venlafaxine because your dr is trying to week you off venlafaxine slowly thays y hes gave u the other anti d so ur body gets used to it so when the venlafaxine comes out your system u will already have the other one used to it so u wont have as much side effects persevere with them honey they will start working soon

  • Thank you so much for replying Hope you get well soon
