. I also believe I have PTSD from my parents divorce when I was 9, but back then it wasn't associated as such. Effexor is not only an antidepressant, but it is also an anti-anxiety
med. It really helps too. I take xanax for
acute panic attacks, but it seems to me that by the time they really start to work, the worst of the attack is over. Oh well. I don't take it that often, as my other meds work great for
me. I hope they don't delete me this time!
