(Hmm my previous post appeared twice. Damn. Well anyway....)

Racer, after hearing you describe your symptoms, I think that high-dose Effexor (300mg or more, perhaps) might actually be the right thing. There are other meds you can use, at least in the short term, to make things more tolerable: stimulants, benzos, antipsychotics, etc. are all fast-acting. (I think buprenorphine would probably help but I don't know if your doctor would be willing to try it.)

It must be really hard to have to worry about whether you're even going to be able to keep seeing your doctor. That can't be helping. If you can find someone to help you deal with it, it might be best to try to get this straightened out, maybe by applying for Medicaid or something like that.

Wishing you the best....
