I was weaning off Lexapro by taking 10 mg with 75 mg Effexor XR as my new drug. I was feeling pretty good. My doctor asked if I just wanted to stay like that and I said I'd rather go ahead with the 150 mg Effexor and no Lexapro. Well I've been off Lexapro and on 150 mg Effexor 3 weeks, 75 mg. the week before that. Now I'm feeling awful with anxiety and I'm wondering if anyone else takes both together and how is it working? I can't get in to see my doctor for a few days.
