I appreciate you blocking that for a week so we can all support one another.

I wanted to just relate my experience with anxiety and effexor in hopes to help. Before I started taking effexor, I had been taking xanax for years. It was the only thing that could control my anxiety. I tried everything on the market I think.
But, when I switched to the Efffexor XR, I was able to SLOWLY wean myself off of it. My doctor does keep me with a prescription for Clonazepam 0.5 mg and if I have trouble I take a half of that. It has worked for me really well and it is not as addicting as xanax and long term affects etc. And it is longer lasting. So, I hope that helps some.
I think the hardest part for people is to finally find a drug that works just for them. Be patient and try not to focus on all the side effects. I know I did that and almost became a hypocondriac. (another on and off again of depression). Well, not almost.. I DID... ha.
I am better now though.

Take care.
