How should I switch from escitalopram 20 mg to venlafaxine xr 150 mg? I'm having generalized anxiety disorder and escitalopram is not working anymore.

Get in touch with your psychiatrist. Also for generalised anxiety disorder I would suggest you begin by making some lifestyle changes too. Start relaxation ecercises and mindfulness training activities. Cognitive behavior therapy is also very efficient in treating gad. Get in touch with a psychologist near you or online.
