I have pretty severe social anxiety and panic issues. I was put on Zoloft at first which seemed to work for the depression but didn't do anything for anxiety (went up to 100mg). So my Dr. switched me to Effexor XR. I am currently on the 75.5(?) dosage. It actually is seeming to make my anxiety worse.
Has anyone been through this with meds? Will my Dr. just try another A.D. or will he go to something else like a benzo? I don't really want to get onto a benzo unless its a last resort, but I am so tired of all the time that it is taking to find some relief.
Its very frustrating.
