What is the equivalent dose of Effexor XR to 60 milligrams of Cymbalta?

I have been taking Cymbalta 60 milligrams twice daily for about 5 years to treat diabetic neuropathy pain in my feet.  My new insurance will only pay for one pill a day.  A doctor I work with suggested changing to Effexor or Effexor XR but I would like to know the dosage equivalent for maximum pain relief.
