What made you decide to go off of it? I went off of effexor only to find out it was helping me. If you are getting obsessive thoughts, I would talk to the doctor about it. Also the anxiety, maybe the zoloft was helping with that. Do you know if it is an ssri or an ssni? One of them has anti anxiety medication in it. I take pristiq and it is an ssni. It has the anti anxiety medication in it. I am trying to cut back on the xanax. My doc wants me to try to wean off. She said that if my anxiety gets bad, she can up my pristiq. I hope that works. It is scarey going off of a medication.
Best wishes, and welcome to the forum Fergie...
