> my doctor prescribed this to me for anxiety and says its caused from anger and depression.... well maybe some anger but i dont feel depressed, after reading about the side effects and eventuall withdraw i will prbly experience i dont think this is the right choice for me. i just take half of a .5mg xanax when im feeling ready to blow and im cool

See if the Effexor works for you at a small dose 37.5 mg. It may take a month or more to figure out if it is helping you or not. You'll hear this over and over again "drugs don't effect all people the same way, only you know how it is effecting you."
I sorry to everyone else but, I've never had any problems stopping medication. If it's not working for me, I just stop taking it. I AM NOT RECOMMENDING THIS TO ANYONE ELSE!! I don't mean to yell, I just cannot express that enough. That's just always been the way that I have done things, and for me it works (no matter what the drug).
For instance, I completely stopped taking my Effexor the day that I ended up in the ER. It was sending me into rapid-cycling with severe manic episodes. More severe than I had ever experienced in my life. It scared the hell out of me. That was the day that I stopped taking it, and I was taking 2x75mg twice a day. On the same day, I stopped taking the sleeping pills that were prescribed for me because of the insomnia, from the Effexor. In the 2 days after I stopped both meds I slept for about 2.5 hrs. Just nature's way of telling me that I'd done something wrong in the first place.
If your doctor thinks that you are also suffering from depression, ask him "how he is treating the depression, if he's using the Effexor to treat the anxiety?"
Like I said before, Effexor does work for some people. Most of the side effects will start to go away as your body gets used to the drug being in your system. That is, as long as you stay at one dosage, and don't increase the dose until you know for sure how you are reacting to the one you're already at. Use a journal to see how your moods are changing. People tell me this over and over again (but I still don't do it). The whole memory and concentration thing. You may be able to though.
