I posted yesterday about weaning off Klonopin and I appreciate your quick response. I have read that the drugs of choice for Generalized Anxiety Disorder are Paxil, Effexor, and Lexapro. I also did some reading in the Mayoclinic.com Drug Database about side effects of these meds. Under Effexor, which is what I take, "side effects that may go away as your body adjust to the med" are nervousness, anxiety, jitteriness, etc. These side effects are not listed under Lexapro. Is Effexor a more stimulating drug than Lexapro? If that is the case, would Lexapro be a better drug choice for me since I am so sensitive to stimulants? (BTW, I can't even drink caffeine or take a half of a decongestant without feeling really nervous and jittery.) If they are side effects that go away, what is the time frame approximately for your body to adjust? Also, I have a strong history of high blood pressure in my family and noticed that that is one of the side effects of effexor. I am 43 now and BP has always been low to normal, would staying on Effexor cause my BP to rise over time? I realize changing drugs would be my Dr's decision but I just wondered what your thoughts were on this matter. I really would like to get off the Klonopin and come back down to 25 mg. of Tenormin. Thanks so much for your help.
