Anna:

Can you possibly get access to a benzo for a few weeks to a month? It *greatly* helps in the adjustment period, and if it continues working, stay on the dose of the benzo.

I may have some other thoughts about what to add for Effexor based anxiety, as I have been on Effexor for a very long time. I will post more..
I dreadfully know how horrid Effexor can add to anxiety.

Best wishes..

Jay

> I've tapering effexor from 300 mg. to 75 mg. cause my pdoc wanted to put me on Tranycylpromine (Parnate).
> I live in Italy and the only Parnate version on the market is a mixed compound (tranycylpromine + an antypsychotic). I can't tolerate antypsychotics (with or without antidepressants) cause they make my depression worse; when i found out that this drug (brand name Parmodaline) had the antypsychotic in it i considered to go back to my previous effexor dose. I was on 37, 5 tablet a day and i added a tablet the next day. This was Wednesday of the last week (about ten days ago or so). I've been adding one more tablet every two days; i eventually came back on full dosage yesterday. I was on reboxetine also, and now i'm back to 8 mg. per day.
> After taking 150 mg. this morning (as is i used to) i had a panic attack. I'm still anxious and can't understnad what's going on. Did any of you experience anxiety going back on effexor? Did i go back on it too abruptely?
> The last panic attack i remember of was May of this year when i was switching to Prozac.
> I really hope it's the drug cause i'm scared it could be a sort of relapse.
> Need a feedback on this please, really scared.
