Hi, Flowers!
It can 6-8 weeks for this medication to become fully effective. If your daily anxiety is severe let your doctor know and perhaps she/he can prescribe a few tablets of a mild sedative to get you through until your Effexor fully kicks in.
Everyone responds differently, but for me Effexor literally is a life saver and I would highly recommend trying to hang on and give it a couple more weeks.
Best regards,
