antidepressants do sometimes help a lot for anxiety but they often ,make your anxiety worse at first,many suffer their first panic attack from starting an AD
a very low starting dose, got by splitting the tablet can help
effexor is a different type of AD and may suit you better, but IMO most docs have been oversold on antidepressants only for anxiety by the drug companies as these meds are highly profitable and docs are given all sorts of incentives to prescribe them, triple frequent flyer points, etc, perhaps :eek:

you obviously need some valium type meds to take as needed, a strategy may be to agree to take the effexor but ask for some valium to help you get used to it and then not bother to take it, BTW all ADs and valium go well together

if still no valium I would be looking for a new doc, older ones are often less antivalium :rolleyes:
