Welcome to HealingWell. I take effexor, 375mg a day. And it helps me. But the doctor added abilify. It helps with obsessive thinking. I no longer worry about
Effexor and Cymbalta are close cousins, so the transition shouldn't be that hard.
Learn to live in the present. Don't dwell on what might happen. Try not to worry about
the future. As said above, yoga might help. It does ground you.
Do you go to any counseling? CBT therapy might be the way to go, it helps you to live in the moment and not worry so much about
what MIGHT happen. So think about
counseling. It has really helped me. I have been going for many years and it is a life saver.
I hope that you feel better soon. And I hope that you get on the proper meds. 75mg of effexor is a low dose and certainly can be upped.
Best wishes to you.
