My daughter had a traumatic event in her life in her late teens and subsequently suffered with anerexia etc. Having survived all this she has over recent months simply not coped with work and the pressures of life in general in the UK. For some years now she has been taking Venlafaxine and has had periods when she has regularly seen a psychiatrist. She has recently come back to live with me and i have registered her with a new doctor and she is seeing a new psychiatrist. Due to patient confidentiality i am obviously not able to attend the doctor sessions. She has had her medication increased to 150MG and has told me that she has been having thoughts of self harming. I am doing everything i can for her on a daily basis as she is unable to do things for herself. She is so tired all the time and whilst i have seen, i think, a slight improvement since she has been back with me i don't know if this is normal on this medication. I live alone and just don't know where to turn to for support and advice. Can anyone help. I do not live in the UK anymore. Thank you in advance.
