It's working very well for me. Anxiety is vastly reduced, panic attacks occur maybe 1 x day instead of 24/7 (what a relief). I'm back up to 150mg of Effexor xr, 300mg Wellbutrin xl, xanax .5mg as needed, and Ambien 5mg as needed. I keep an eye on my blood pressure, and I still experience some excessive perspiring. If only I could dip my entire body in anti-perspirant, it wouldn't be a problem.

The depression only rears its ugly head if something situational triggers it - and I'm getting excellent treatment from my therapist and also with EMDR.

My p-doc currently sees me for follow-up every 3 weeks. My libido came back (thank heavens), and my weight is back to pre-medication days. Now I have the depression under sufficient control, I'm able to exercise, too. It's always been an issue for me (just don't like doing it because I'm lazy and I sweat like the dickens), but I found a gym that does 30-minute workouts - short enough to make it doable, but long enough to get good results.

For those interested, I had also tried Celexa, Paxil, Inderal, Ativan, Buspar, Vistaril, and Zyprexa. This is for a dx of Bipolar2, GAD, and Panic Attacks. I've been taking meds for 6 or 7 years but only started seeing a p-doc and T last October.

Let me know if you need any other particulars.
