For those who have followed my story. I suffer severe constant anxiety. I even have a bag packed to go to emergency it is so bad/
I have been on 10 mg of prozac which didn't seem to do me any good at all.
I saw the Dr yesterday and he switched me to Effexor.
37.5 mg caps for a week and then two caps a day the following week.
I took the first cap today and feel very strange. I just want to sleep and am in a world of my own. Will this go away when my system gets use to them. I took it first thing this morning but think I will switch and take it at bedtime.
I am on a very low dose of everything because of my weight. I have lost 30 some odd lbs since the anxiety started and very seldom feel like eating. From what I have read Effexor is one of the better drugs for anxiety.I have a very positive out look that this is going to help.
Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thank you all so much for your support.
