what strategies can I employ to stop feeling anxious when I go out?
I have been on fluoxetine for years and it's not doing anything anymore so I've been prescribed desvenlafaxine. I'm scared to try a different antidepressant as I've always been on fluoxetine. Does anyone have any experience on desvenlafaxine?

I've been taking sertraline for a couple weeks. I take it at bedtime. I took a caffeine pill around noon after eating and then drank half a Reign energy drink with my meal just after 5 pm. Shortly after returning to work at 6, I began to feel very anxious. Has anyone else experienced similar? I don't always use this much caffeine but I'm guessing this means I need to cut back. I was able to tolerate 200 mg a couple days ago but I don't think I should use much more than that.
