I have to decide whether or not to start taking Buspar or Effexor XR? I have GAD, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia and Hypochondria (spelling?). I am getting worse every day and have put off medicine for WAY to long.

I am having a rough time with the decision b/c I dont know much about these medicines and maybe someone out there has tried both and liked one better than the other?? I am not depressed so i dont know if effexor is a good one or the buspar??

Any thoughts would be more than appreciated!!!! I am going to start one of them either tomorrow or Thursday.
I am currently on both. My ob was the one prescribing me at first and my psych backed up her stance that the buspar helps the effexor to work better. I have anxiety pretty bad at times and when I had a child I completely lost it. She gave me medicine like buspar, or maybe it was the buspar to use alone and it did absolutely nothing. The effexor is an antidepressant, and i don't have that problem either, but they miraculously work for anxiety as well. My rec would be to do the effexor, or both, but not just the buspar. by the way, what is GAD?
