krojoy24 Posted July 29, 2005 Share Posted July 29, 2005 Hi everyone. I love reading all of your post, they are very informative. I have had panic, depression, GAD, and social anxiety for about 15 years now. Five years ago I went on Effexor XR between 75-150 mg. I has worked great for me, and every time I go off it I relapse. Have felt the withdrawles of this drug. No fun. Well anyways Effexor has pooped out on me. Very depressed having anxiety and mad sugar cravings. So i we to a pshycitrist. He wanted me to stay on the Effexor 150 mg, added Wellbutrin 100sr, and buspar 10mg 2times daily. This in hopes of getting off Effexor. Well stupid me I backed my Effexor down to 75 already. I am getting panic attacks again and feeling very hopeless. Switching meds is very stressful. I upped it to the 150mg today. I feel like I'm never going to beable to get steady on meds again. I want to stay on the Wellbutrin because of smoking and being overweight. I know I need something to help with my anxiety. I don't know if the buspar will help with that or if I should just give in and stay on my Effexor with the Wellbutrin. I am going to see my psychiatrist again today and I will update you. Till then , what do you think about my meds? What has been sucessful for you with anxiety and depression? Any information is greatly appreciated.
