Overall, side effects are definitely more common with venlafaxine than say escitalopram when used for anxiety. I don't think venlafaxine is a good first choice for GAD.

Interestingly enough, I've read that some pts with epilepsy have fewer seizures when on low to standard doses of SSRIs. They don't seem proconvulsant for the majority. Some ADs such as clomipramine are clearly proconvulsant.
