I gave a title to your post...that was the edit...feel free to change it if you like.;)
I do not have personal experience with this Rx, but have heard pretty positive things.
I am sure that you will be hearing from more members soon.
However, it is always good to remember that everyone has individual needs and will react differently, so the only way to know for sure if a med is right for you is to try and see for yourself.:)
Wishing you luck in whatever you decide and try. Keep us posted!

I have had tremendous success with Effexor XR. I recently just started back on it in June so it is still building up in my system, but everyone has noticed a change for the better in me...getting back to my old self. I currently take 150 mg, but started out at 37.5 mg. Before I started taking it, I wouldn't go anywhere, was having panic attacks throughout the day, you name it...now, I am going shopping again, and going more places, with little anxiety.
BTW, welcome to Healing Well!!!!
