Thank you for your question.

Sorry to hear about your problem.

3 effexor is not a very high dose.

You should be fine.

Meanwhile for the nausea I would recommend that you should take over-the-counter dramamine and keep yourself well hydrated.

Try using two 500 mg tylenol for the headache.

You should be fine in the next 12 to 24 hours.
