Effexor rx revisited

Posted by Mattie on June 12, 2001, at 22:02:08

I am a 54 (menopuasal) woman who for 6 months has been on .5 of xanax 3/day for anxiety and fear of anxiety attacks. Have tried Paxil (outerspace feeling), zoloft (the runs), pamelor (racing heart). Yesterday my pdoc gave me samples of effexor rx 37.5 to try for 2 weeks and then bump up to 75. After reading withdrawal posts I am soooo scared to try this med. Isn't this another SSRI? She only mentioned dry mouth as a side effect and did not seem concerned about withdrawal. So my questions to you all are: Has anyone taken this along with xanax (the idea is to get off the xanax), is this an anti-anxiety agent? I do not feel depressed (no crying, sleeping). Any feedback would be appreciated. I am most concerned that even after 1 week this can be hard to get off of.
