Hi, been on venlafaxine since beginning of April. Started on 75mg and now up to 187.5mg. 150 extended release in the morning and 37.5 immediate release in the evening.
Was very poorly from December to April with depression and anxiety and ended up in hospital. The venlafaxine has definitely helped but I'm still experiencing some anxiety and low mood. Had a bad week 3 weeks ago which is when dr increased me to 187.5mg and I've felt consistently better since then but after a stressful event at the weekend which is now resolved I'm really struggling again. Because I had such a bad experience landing me in hospital I tend to panic at every bad day convincing myself that it's all coming back.
Can anybody tell me after this long should I still be experiencing the lows and anxiety? Or should I look at maybe increasing again? Really need some advice and reassurance if anybody else has experienced this.
Also does anybody else suffer with loss of appetite on this medication?
