    Effexor, cymbalta are excellent for anxiety. Both worked very well for me.

      I started 50mg pristiq today. But I'm a ver socially outgoing personality. Means I don't stay home, I go up the park here where its safe, beautiful, trees, rose garden, picnic tables, a small lake across the street. Beautiful and peaceful, I walk the trails. I love music big time. Blast the radio. Also I love the waterfront near me. Outside shops and restaurants by the river. Peaceful for me. I need to do all this for me and my wellbeing. Alone.

    Myself and pristiq just ended now. I'm at the park to ride the anxiety and lump in my throat out. I'm so sick of this. All these side affects are reactions the same and worse that landed me in ER. Dr. Office said stop it. Temporarily I will go back on effexor. Until Dr. Decides. As I'm out of options. Its breezy in the park and 70's. I have my ativan and know what to do but its hard, and my body is worn out.

    Reduce the Anxiety Tablets and after Stop it... This Medications are useless.. I have been suffering from Anxiety for a long time but never took Medication and I am almost fine now...

    I only did Pranayam, Excercise... and focussed more on Internet Jokes daily and started watching ony comedy Movies..... it helped and relaxed my mind and I stopped thinking about every movement of health...

    And most Important stop searching for symptoms in GOOGLE...

    Other good option is Hypnosis..... till the time your mind is clear none of the Medication will work. anyway Medication never works...

      I've had this 26 years. Had almost 20good ones on effexor and cymbalta. This all started last fall going off cymbalta and wellbutrin, was on since out. But I got vision problems. Went off. Now my body won't accept anything. But the good old ativan. Yes iam going to meditate and yoga soon per Dr advice and massage. And my park and music.

      First. Maybe you need to change antidepressants, like me. Second yes I had very bad vision problems last year. It went away.and it does. Thank goodness. Good riddens to pristiq also for me. You will be fine. Do you like decorating or flower arranging? You could do.

      Your so funny. Probably none of us would have anyone around if we all stopped the meds. Wow six years old is a long time. Look how far you came. You'll be ok again, just like me, we just hit a bump.

      Its in your Mind dear..... I know how it feels... I am not saying to stop is directly instead reduce the dose and ultimately stop it...

      You HAVE to do Pranayam, Meditation and may be try Hypnosis... till the time your Mind is not clear you will never get out from this cycle...

      Medicine Just force body to release the chemical which makes us feel good... but forcing body for something for a long time might get you in trouble in later stages....Our body is like us who don;t want anybody to force it do something... Just think on that...
