Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi there ,
Welcome to Just answer !
Well, what you need right now in order to control your excessive anxiety is to add 1 anxiolytic ( anti anxiety agent ) which is non addicting like the Buspar ( buspirone ) to the efffexor xr that you are presently taking , and this buspar should be taken in three doses , morning , afternoon , evening and the dose should be started with 5 mg dose , at each dose ..This combination of effexor xr and buspar will positively control your anxiety in about 2- 3 weeks duration , as this much duration is required for buspar to reach its peak action in the body and show its effects ..
And this buspar is unlike your previous anxiety drugs like valium and xanax which were habit forming and addictive..
So , kindly discuss ths with your treating doctor and ask him to presecribe you buspar , while continuing on effexor xr..
I hope ths helps..
I wish you all the best...
