4 doctors weighed in:

Was taking 37, 5 of effexor, (venlafaxine) and feeling fine. Doc said to raise to 75, feeling like a zombie (slow and without emotions). Is it normal?

3 doctors agree

In brief: IT IS QUITE NORMAL,

However, if after a week or so you are still kissing walls and eating human flesh, go back down to the lower dose since it seemed to have done well for you.
