Hello, after an unsuccessful switch to citalopram, am now on venlafaxine, 150mg for 5 weeks. The citalopram disaster and long drawn out switch to ven, made me more depressed than ive ever been. I was constantly terrified and really down, all the time. No good days at all. First 4 weeks on ven 150mg dose, seem to slightly help make me feel less hopeless and a bit calmer. No good days though. Last 2 weeks, i have experienced mood swings, feeling okay, then down, lasting 4 or 5 days for each. Are the mood swings a sign of improvement? Ive never been in as bad before as i was 6 weeks ago. The state i was in then, is that a worse state than mood swings, ie worse beyond mood swings? Never been as bad as 6 weeks ago, close to giving up, as in admitting myself to hospital. Thanks.
