lestat Posted February 24, 2008 Share Posted February 24, 2008 Hi everyone,Not sure whether to post this in the Anxiety forum or this one. I've been on Effexor for three weeks now. Pretty much the afternoon of the first tablet I took of effexor I started feeling noticeably better. Over the next few days I felt really good. Now I'm feeling horrible. I'm currently on only 75mg per day.I've suffered from anxiety for about ten years now, some periods feeling really good, other times going through rough patches. My mum died about 2 years ago. About a week and a half ago my grandmother died. I felt pretty sad about that, the thing is I hardly saw her much or even talked to her so I wasn't very close to her. It felt like all the memories of my mums death came flooding back.I've felt really anxious over the past week and I don't know if it's because of my grandmother dying or the effexor stopped working. I've read on these boards that effexor can have an initial period of elation then you crash.I'm so sick and tired of feeling anxious and it stopping me from enjoying things.I tihnk this is going to stop me from having a good future. I hate it because I have so much to be thankful for and I don't enjoy it much because I feel so scared.Often I think aobut if I didn't have this anxiety I could be so happy.Is there any hope for me?
