Ssri: Not good idea to add ssri to snri. Talk to your doctor about anxiety medications.

Steamline, ssri: Is probably all you need. The difference in treatment for anxiety requires more robust doses than for treatment of depression alone. Effexor (venlafaxine) is an snri; it increases norepinephrine which could be fueling anxiety in the first place. Except in some exceptions, not good practice to combine multiple antidepressants as side effects become more likely. Discuss w/ doc. Hope this helps.
