I have gave up going to the doctors for my anxiety' my biggest problems being dizziness and my breathing' please tell me there is a way out.

Don't give up: You don't list what kind of doctors you have seen, but you need to get a physical workup to make sure there isn't anything going on there. If you are not getting results seeing a therapist and psychiatrist make sure you tell your doctors that you feel like they aren't helping. If that still doesn't work, look for different treatment, sometimes you just need to find the right fit. Best wishes. ...Read more

See a neurologist: These symptoms may represent a headache or other neurological condition (for example, BPPV), sinus issues, vasovagal response, or a vascular/blood flow issue. You should keep a log of the location, timing, duration, and intensity of these episodes and take the log with you to a neurologist. Avoid sudden head turns. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/001420.htm ...Read more

Going off Effexor (venlafaxine): Let's assume your doctors have good reasons. But it could entail a discontinuation syndrome, if your doctor doesn't do it right. Make sure you have the correct tapering instructions. It could also result in your re-experiencing symptoms that Effexor (venlafaxine) was treating. Your doctor should be ready with an alternative medicine. ...Read more
