Last year my doctor told me to double my dose, I completley ignored her as I knew it was a passing moment, and it was and it passed and I came through it with out doubling it. However around about 8 months ago I hit a major depressive patch and I'm still not thruogh it. My son went to live with his dad and it think it is centered around that however even through I know my son has made the right choice I can't pull my self out of it, I have been exerciseing and trying to keep busy going on holidays going out for dinner but I am so numb.
I'm currently on 75mg Venlaflaxine which the doctor wanted to double to 150mg last year
I'm wondering to follow her advice now? Iam asking for help as I do have some stange sideaffects with this medication
When I forget to take it for 24hrs I come down with vertigo like sympotms when I walk the ground feels like a bouncy castle and I feel like my head is full of helium and it feels like its floating around with a simimual sensation to when your on a plane and its bumping around.
I'm worried that these senations will get worse, or if I forget to take it I will be written off completley
Also, I belive they may have cased some weight gain which of course is not helping self esteam
Hoping to touch base with anyone else that had doubled their dose and what happend
I have had clinical depression for the past 20 years
Look forward to hearing from you
