I am 24 years old.I have anxiety and I am taking medications for that - Effexor XR two times a day Olanzapine 5 mg one at night. It has been now four years that I am struggling with this illness and now none of the medicine work for me. Please advice me what should I do.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
If you are suffering from anxiety disorder only, why do you need to take Olanzapine? Olanzapine is an antipsychotic and it has no role in anxiety. Effexor (Venlafaxine) is a good medication. You can try a simple and good medication with a low side effect like tablet Sertraline or tablet Escitalopram.
Olanzapine causes weight gain - hypercholesterolemia and diabetes (metabolic syndrome) after two or three years of use. Effexor is also known for its cardiovascular side effect like hypertension. I would advise you to switch over to other medications if you have only anxiety problem and no other medications have been used in the past.
Do daily exercise. Take good care of health. Avoid junk food. Have a good quality of proper sleep. Learn to do relaxation.
