Have free floating anxiety which is making my life very miserable,can't relax,sleep and have to force myself to engage with social situations.Unfortunately have tried all other ssris' and a nsri but they have all given me akathesia i.e. inability to stay still to the point that I have gone out at 3am walking around my local streets.None of them have ever made me feel sleepy,quite the opposite I feel I'm plugged into an electric socket and am permenantly 'juiced' up,my GP says this is very rare and that I must be particularly sensitive to these meds but feels it's worth me trying venlafaxine but I'm unsure as these side effects are worse than the anxiety but I really would like to feel 'normal'and get my life back to what it was.Has anyone else had this problem with venlafaxine?
