Hey jms600...you have a very similar diagnosis as me (i'm atypical depression, gad and social anxiety - basically anxiety is my root issue with depression as a "side effect" of that anxiety). If I can make a suggestion, trying to save you some time and possible aggrevation (forgive me though I dont want to mess up your treatment or bring you down a wrong path) but I found anxiety to go through the roof on effexor at higher doses (it has significant NE effect). Again sorry to butt in but...is your dr willing to try nardil (a maoi)? It's been brilliant for my anxiety (gad and social), both in mental and physical sense and less so for depression. Since you share similar symptomology as me I thought you might benefit from it more than effexor. Actually if you look up nardil (a lil research on your part) you will see it fits your symptoms very well, serious.

keep smilin,
myco
