I have recently started Venlafaxine for anxiety - mainly agoraphobia.
I am gradually increasing the dose - just started on 75mg twice a day.
My question is - has anyone on here used it successfully for agoraphobia?
If so, did you just feel more able to go out because your anxiety was less?
Or was it a case of pushing yourself to go out, but feeling less panicky when you did?
I hope that makes sense. It's just that I have had agoraphobia for so long now that the thought of going out of my 'comfort area' just fills me with horror, so I don't even attempt it anymore. I am hoping that the venlafaxine will take those feelings away.
Any help or advice would be great, thanks.
