> Scott, I don't really know your experiences with anxiety. Would you say it's a major problem? If you don't mind sharing.

Early in the course of my illness (bipolar depression), social anxiety was intertwined with depression. I suffered depersonalization and derealization for a number of years, which included a more generalized anxiety. However, I would not characterize any of my experiences with anxiety as being GAD. I would say that my use of self-directed CBT helped to treat whatever anxiety I had. Self-discovery, self-actualization, and mindfulness were critical in my survival with severe depression and maintaining positive energy, optimism, and resilience.

Mindfulness and diaphragmatic breathing can be helpful when battling anxiety.

Have you ever tried Paxil? Of the serotonin reuptake inhibitors, it is probably the best at treating GAD and social anxiety. My guess is that Effexor would be almost as effective. Of course, Nardil should be considered if no other treatment is adequate. Nortriptyline combined with Effexor makes a good combination for depression. Perhaps it would help with GAD.
