Sorry to post again so quickly...but I thought I might add that I have been off Effexor for 3 solid months I am officially "back to my Old Self" before taking an AD several years ago for aniety disorder.

Most of you know that the trouble with your "Old Self" is exactly what I think Glydin is

I am older, a bit wiser..and I understand the who, what and why of my anxiety. I now understand WHY my personality is geared in this fashion..and recognize why Zoloft, Effexor and Xanax mask the
problem when taken as directed.

The trouble is....what now?

I do not want to be on AD's...and I do to want to feel like this. I thought the lack of motivation was due to the blunting of the Meds.
Maybe its not....maybe its just how I am.

I havnt given up...but I do see why some resign
themselves to self-medicate.

Ive had several good counselors,and both Zoloft and Effexor masked the anxiety and improved my mood.

I guess I am surprised that even after KNOWING intellectually the WHY of my final answer has come after years of research, questioning and medication on my part.

To medicate or not to medicate..that is the question~

Any suggestions?
