I'm not sure that my reply went through, so....
I've yet to take the venlafaxine as I've read lots of negative comments about it. My dr. suggested it for the anxiety issue as well as hot flashes. Do you see it as an appropriate medication given the issues I've described. Thanks so much.
One other question on venlafaxine. Will the drug increase anxiety when I first begin it as I've been concerned about this? Though I know everyone is different, I wonder if this should be expected, or if it's just with some patients. How long should the drug take to work before producing positive results re: feelings of anxiety. Thanks so much.
