Re: Nothing works
Mar 12, 2009
Was on effexor 150 mg for 3 months and just came off it too. Didn't do anything for my anxiety, even after only 3 months though i had some nice withdrawal symptoms, stopped cold turkey though cause my doc said it was a short enough time to just stop. They weren't as bad as i read about though, thank god.

Also tried lexapro- nothing
Paxil- nothing

Currently on Buspar 40 mg twice a day and it's been a week and also nothing so far :)

I also take Propranolol @ 40 mg twice a day for my anxiety induced blood pressure spikes and the rapid heartbeat and other anxiety symptoms associated with it. Works well when i'm already relaxed, but if i'm anxious enough i sweat, heart pounds, and it doesn't feel like i'm on the medication. It's like my anxiety fights right through it.


Anti-depressants really make good meds for anxiety, don't they? :jester:


My doc wants me try prozac or Cymbalta next , i really don't feel like building up another anti-d in me, only to have it not work and have to withdraw for no reason.

I also haven't slept in months cause of them. I really want to give benzos a shot next.
