I have serious panic disorder and generalized anxiety. I recently was told to ween myself off of Wellbutrin and begin taking Effexor - I have weened myself off Wellbutrin and am going to start taking Effexor but I get so scared when it comes to taking new medications I tend to freak myself. Is Effexor genuinely safe? Does it work? I know everyone reacts differently but I could really use some reassurance...
No medication is completely safe. However, Effexor is taken by many people without a problem. I've been on it for more then 10 yrs. I have no problems with it.
Curious as to why you weaned yourself off as opposed to that being Dr ordered. "Safe" has a lot to do with how (and if) we follow directions, be it starting, stopping or weaning.
