One 5 mg tablet of Valium every 2 to 3 days affects my anxiety more than the 112.5 mg of effexor-xr i take daily. Should i increase the Effexor (venlafaxine) dose?

In brief: Work w/your doctor

You really need to work with your doctor on any medication changes, rather than asking online physicians who don't know you.
Effexor (venlafaxine) can be very helpful in anxiety.
