i still have some anxiety i notice it more during the day when im at work, but once i get home i feel better. I am suppose to go up to 150 (@75mg now) on friday... kinda scarry since when i was on it before i was 75 mg, trusting God and my PDR that this works. Im so ready to be normal. Anyone else on 150mg is there much difference??
I have tried many things for my awful depression. This has been the ONLY THING that has helped me. I too have major anxiety and it has also helped a lot with that! Good luck to you!
in my opinion, my anxiety got worse on effexor..i found that celexa worked beset!
I was up to 225mg for maybe a year or so then I backed myself to 150's. I've been on that for maybe 2 plus years. The only thing for me is I just feel lazy if I'm not at work or have something planned to do . That's better than being crazy though...
Well the drug definitely will help the anxiety that's for sure, the upped dosage is also going to help. You are absolutely correct trust God. It is better to be on it than be crazy, I find it gives me loads of energy. There are some draw backs but I am sure you know that by now. Remember this, coming off of it is awful, stepping back on it is awful. But the Lord keeps me from being crazy too.
Good health to you dear
