hi hibee, was on a high dose of effexor xr myself, lucky that pristiq is a derivative of effexor, thus i only weaned a week, albeit i have weaned from effexor to other ad's and have had similar experiences. you need to give the new med time to do it's corrective balance, thus with all of my luck you pick up real soon, and yes it may well be a harder process with GAD, especially as effexor has a mild sedating element. keep strong. with compassion.
