... quick question I have been on Effexor 75 mg for 10 days now and still feel very anxious I just wondered is this normal as I've been having to take Valium as well to get through it I was on lovan for seven weeks and it landed me in the hospital so I'm a bit frightened of the same thing happening again . I see my psychiatrist again on Thursday so I'll be interested to see what he says . I have more problems with anxiety then depression so I'm hoping that the Effexor works. I have problems eating and my lack of motivation to get out there and do stuff also plays on me as I'm quite an active person . I also understand that it's early days but thought I would feel a wee bit better. Any advice from you would be appreciated have a great day. I'm just frightened of all the negativity about coming of this drug as well.
