... increasing anxiety
I was also on Effexor for depression but mainly anxiety. I had a really bad experience with this medication. I started having heart palpitations and insomnia. I told my doctor this and he weaned me off of the Effexor and put me on Pristiq. The Pristiq worked really well for me although it was a bit more expensive. Check into that medication. You may like it. It is said and believed to have way less side effects. I think so anyway. Also, lowering your dose may help. Check with your doc!
