I was prescribed effexor generic 37.5 for anxiety/panic and mild depression. Been taking it for 2 1/2 weeks... only take once per day. My anxiety is awful still. Will this med ever start working. I get so scared and aggravated. I don't know where to turn. My doctor has no idea anything about antidepressants I don't think. I also take low dose trazadone at night to help with insomnia. Any help would be appreciated. I took Cymbalta 30mg before and it worked great for me... I was actually back to normal with it... but my insurance will not pay for it anymore. Please help with info
