Does Effexor..............

Come in a generic form? I am on week four of 15mgs of Lexapro and yes I am some what better, but still have panic attacks mostly while driving on the interstate.

This is scaring me to death. Should I give the Lexapro more time, oh my doctor gave me many samples of Lex for he know I don't have health insurance til I find a job.

I am also taking 1 mg of Klonoplin as needed and lately almost every day.

Please tell what you think. I have heard Effexor is good for anxiety but a good friend on this board.........however, do you think I should give the Lexapro more time?

Hugs to all ....................AND HAPPY 4th of July.........enjoy with family, if able.

Effexor Xr doesn't come in generic form. Regular effexor comes in generic. Sometime this year effexor xr will be generic.

Re: Does Effexor..............

I would probably go up to 20mg of the lexapro first. Then it that doesn't help, call your doctor. My daughter was on 150mg Effexor Xr and 10 mg of lexapro . She's off of everything now.
