> Redula, I can't TELL you why you are taking Effexor XR, but Effexor is used for a variety of psychiatric disorders including major depressive disorders, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and dysthymia.

Were your medications ever useful? Did you EVER feel better after you started the Effexor and Xanax? Perhaps your medications need to be re-evaluated for whether they are the right ones, given at the right doses, and at the right times and combinations.

Is your doctor a psychiatrist? Why don't you ask her what your diagnosis is? How often do you see her? Are you receiving counseling also? I think you may need far more help than you seem to be receiving. You have to let someone who can help know how bad you feel to get that help, however. Does you doctor KNOW how bad you feel? Have you TOLD her?

I don't know what else to say except good luck and try to get help from a competent professional as quickly as you can.


I have currently been taking the Effexor for at least 8 to 12 months, I not sure what month that I started, but I am up to taking 2, 75 mg a day, plus 1, Xanax 0.5 mg three times a day. I also hve trouble sleeping. I have a good Dr, but I've never asked her what I was diagnosed with. I was sexually abused as a child. I had at one time put this behind me, but now (to make a long story short), things have been kind of throwed back at me. I had surpressed alot of my child hood. It's been rough, and there are days I'm not even able to get out of bed due to pain, numbness, or unable to move.
> I still have anxiety attacks, and my body just jerks all over and I went from have a full time job, attending college, raising my two little girls, to being affrain of doing anything.
> Some times I feel over medicated, and there are times I feel that I couldn't live with out it.
> Please, help me to under stand why I am taking the Effexor ER.
