Hi, Effexor-XR has been approved for GAD-I'm not sure about SA. I'm sure it falls into the category though? Effexor has worked for my social anxiety and my general anxiety=2 of the same? From what I know, Effexor works on all 3-dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. I had no luck on SSRI's which work only on Serotonin. I don't know if I am of any help to you here,but how long have you been on the Effexor that you are still full of anxiety???? Please get back to me. It's been a long day-but I want to help.
To be continued........
I'm trying to get an idea of the effectiveness of dopamine-related medication in people with Social Anxiety. If you have SA and have taken these types of meds, please name the drug and what the effects were. Thanks!
I think someone said that effexor was a dopamine agonist, however it mad my anxiety much worse. Does this mean that my anxiety is not caused by an increase in dopamine? I thought that effexor was also supposed to increase serotonin and norepinephrine? Im getting confused here, sorry! If effexor made my anxiety worse, what meds do I need to calm me down? Dopamine, noradrenaline, and seratonin antagonists? are they benzo's? Also when I am calm, I am more depressed. HELP!
