> Hey all. I was on Zoloft for about 8 years, then switched to Celexa to see if had less sexual side effects or helped with anxiety, though I was better on Zoloft than I had been before. My main problem is anxiety rather than depression. Anyway, recently I started having a lot of anxiety and thought the Celexa was not working properly. I went to the nurse practicioner and she thought Effexor RX would be good for the anxiety. I started today on 37.5 mg and am supposed to go to 75 mg after a week. I had never heard of this medication so I started reading about it and mostly everything I saw here scared me. Maybe I should just go back to the Zoloft instead of trying this? Right now I am feeling very anxious but I don't know if it is from going off the Celexa or maybe from reading all this, it is having a psychological effect. Are there ANY success stories? I am supposed to go back to the doctor in 2 weeks. How long will it take me to tell if this will work for me?

I like Effexor, but it causes sexual side effects too, just like the SSRI's. If Zoloft worked well for you I would go back to it & add something to fix it's side effects such as Wellbutrin or Remeron.

Cheers,
Panda.
