Antidepressent for anxiety

Discussion Title:
Has anyone been prescribed Effexor RX and how are they making out on it?

Kathleen,
If your preference is no medication at all because of the side effects of anti-depressants you might want to consider a device called Alpha-Stim. I use it for occasional anxiety and it works wonders. I even use it at the dentist office as I steam up the safety glasses significantly. The alpha stim has worked very effectively for me. It typically is covered by insurance ad the company has a 30 day return policy. The cost is $795 for the lower cost model which will work just fine for most users. The device will also help with migraines.
