My primary diagnosis is Generalized Anxiety Disorder and I have a mood disorder and a personality disorder. I take 300mg of Venlafaxine and 200mg of Amisulpride. These help but in the last 6 months my depression is getting worse. I think I didn't realize how bad it had gotten but in hindsight I have most of the typical features. There is not much room to up the Venlafaxine and the anti-psychotics cause bad side effects at higher doses. What other medication options are there in the UK. I don't want to stop what I am on because it does work to some extent. My psychiatrist says there are more options but my appoinment is a little way out still. Technically I am dischared from primary mental health care but my psychiatrist is seeing me as a one-off as my GP is not well placed to advise. I think the issue is that life has been throwing me some curve balls recently, sick parents, pressure on my relationship etc. I have felt very suicidal again and that is scarry as I started to make plans.
