It does not seem as effective as when I began the medicine. I did feel great initially but now I feel the anxiety, edginess and fullness in my chest returning. I take 225mg now. Should I ask to increase my dose or should I ask to suuplement it with Xanax or Abilify? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
ask your dr for xanax, just for the initial onset of panic attacks, thats what i take and its a life saver let me tell you, it keeps me from going to the er wich happend twice, and thats when i first got a shot of atavan, and xanax, i let my dr know what i was given so now i always have a small amount of xanax for my attacks at home. i asked about abilify, and my dr and also our friends here on this site dont think abilify is anything great
Hello Oceanblue12. Since the effexor was working well in the beginning, Id increase it to 300mg. Thatys the so called maintence dose that people who take effexor do well on. If you don't feel any improvement, then you could look at other options. Not a good idea to mix xanax and effexor, for if you do you'll find yourself fairly sedated, and so going to work, daily routines will become much more difficult. best to you,
