Hi everyone! I don't recognize most of the names on here anymore since it's probably been a couple years or more since I've been on here.

I have been having a lot of anxiety issues lately, as I have in the past...but I finally got up the nerve to talk to my doctor and she wants me to try Effexor.

This is b/c I have tried Zoloft before, and it destroyed my sex drive. She said there are 3 in that same class as Zoloft, so I should probably stay away from those, and this is the next best choice. She also said I could try Wellbutrin, but that that works better for depression, which I don't have.

So - I am very nervous to start this new drug and want to know if anyone is on it and what your side effects are? Do you like it? Should I try it?

I currently take xanax about 1 out of 4 days to sleep at night. (Most of my anxiety is at night and I never take xanax during the day b/c it wipes me out) I just want something for my anxiety during the days that makes it very hard for me (I have 2 very small children).

Thanks in advance for any advise!!

I haven't had a chance to look through posts but I might just to see what everyone is up to that I recognize!! Hope you are all doing well.
