In brief: Yes
Effexor (venlafaxine) is taken daily to prevent anxiety, while Xanax can be used on an as-needed basis for breakthrough anxiety symptoms -- the daily use of Effexor (venlafaxine) should make your need for Xanax less.

In brief: Combining meds
These are commonly used together. All medicines have "side effects" .
The lists are long and there are no guarantees. I usually start one first, and observe for effects, and then start the other one.
