I felt like I was out of options when I got on Effexor. I had gone from 155pounds to 114pounds because I stopped eating since everything I ate gave me IBS-D. It stopped the D within a couple weeks completly as well as the anxiety and I didn't have any cramps (during my period) or lower back pain. I needed those few years of relief. It was hard to get off of and I did take xanax to get off and I occasionally have to take xanax now. I get anxious when my husband travels (which is about seven months out of the year because he works in Major League Baseball), when I travel (fly or drive longer than an hour), when I have plans to go out or have people over and when I start to feel sick (I had a panic attack earlier this week because my heartburn hurt so bad I thought I was going to die)! Sounds like a lot but most days I am fine. I just choose what I REALLY want to do and who I REALLY want to see so I don't waste time and energy getting stressed out with a busy social schedule. I am going to start seeing a Christian counselor and hopefully she can help with the anxiety and maybe my stomach will settle down. BUT, if it doesn't then I will get back on Effexor or maybe even try Cymbalta since I have heard it is similar to Effexor. Quality of life it the key and right now mine is not so hot!
