Was taking effexor/ativan combo but stopped taking effexor 6 months ago cold turkey (huge mistake but lost 20 lbs instantly).Now starting to have anxiety/depression again. Dr said combo of zoloft/Xanax should get me back on track. Would appreciate any input/ advice. Am 50 yr female also take meds b /c had heart attack 5 yrs ago.
You are the perfect example of my argument about people stopping anti depressants. Now you need it and you've gone thru withdrawal and its going to take a few weeks of side effects and a month until it works again. Yes go back on it and don't stop it again.
