In brief: Desvenlafaxine

does not have an FDA indication for anxeity at this time.
However, that does not mean that it can't be used off-label to treat anxiety. Don't know how long you have been on it - as results don't usually occur right away. Please let your doctor know this important information.

Dr Acharya - I don't think that jumping to a benzodiazapine is necessarily the best next step.

In brief: Discuss with your

doctor. You need to geve it several weeksbefore you say it is not working.
