Discussions that mention effexor

Alternative Medicine board


Dana,
Sorry to hear about the anxiety. I also have anxiety, and was on effexor. I did not feel comfortable on it so I looked into a supplement called 5-htp. I have been on it for 2 1/2 weeks now and feel very good. Look at the posts in this forum on the SAM-e for depression and anxiety. I did alot of research on the 5htp before starting it and would suggest the same for you. Also do not start anything without talking to your doc, and being off of the anti-anxiety meds. Mixing them could be bad.
Let me know how you are doing or have any questions.
