I was hesitant to start effexor because of all the bad withdrawals that a lot of people were experiencing on this forum. I eventually tried it and it worked wonders for my GAD, I was on 225/mg per day for over 3 years and didn't have any side effects. I now have switched over to Cymbalta to see if this works better than Effexor. When I weaned off the Effexor I did not experience any withdrawal symptoms which I thought was odd since so many people do. Anyways I would advise anyone to at least try Effexor, I had tried many of the SSRI's to no avail. If the Cymbalta does not work I will not hesitate to go back on Effexor.
