> Does this mean at a low dosage it is inferior OR equal to other SSRI's in efficacy?

Nobody can measure the efficiency of a drug for an individual except that individual, especially when it comes to mental health issues.

> If it's a potentially toxic drug is it possible to over-dose at such a low dosage?

I had pointed out to my child that she couldn't believe everything she sees and hears on television. I was giving her some advice from something I read on the internet. Smart little cookie pointed out to me that I shouldn't believe everything I read on the net.

In my opinion, you have no chance of an "overdose" on a low dose of effexor.

>Would you recommend another SSRI in lieu of Effexor for GAD?

For myself effexor has been excellent for symptoms of GAD. I kept seeing improvement even months after being on the medication. It taught me that patience was really important regarding AD's and treating symptoms of mental illness.

Just some of my many opinions!
