Re: Effexor xr for anxiety?

I've taken it. But I took for my daily migraines, and to tell you the truth I hated it. Effexor is like the superhero of anti-depressants and for me, the first couple of months my mood was definitely better. Though a couple months later it felt like I had crashed and I became severely depressed. So depressed that I wanted to die. I don't remember any other major side effects, but I've been on so many meds it's hard to remember. I am hypersensitive to all meds, so there's a good chance that it will help with your anxiety. Good luck.
