Hi,

I know oxazepam is a benzo, but it help a lot for DR (not really DP) I stopped it because I woke up and didn't remember my day at all. But it helps anxiety.

Id tell your doc to stick the benzo in his anus :lol: and just tolerate any adverse effects the effexor may cause till it begins to work.

I was given effexor and provigil at the same time.... I stayed up crying my eyes out til like 7am. I think the provigil kept me awake and the effexor was the cause of the crying but I could be wrong. And then... meds work different for everybody.

effexor certainly quelled the anxiety, but then amplified the dp. It's a bit of a toss up...and then i only took it for a few days, it may get better after a longer period.
