Okay. So I've been on venlafaxine for over a year now and it's worked well to alrightish for my moods. 75mg makes me liable to crash and burn if something terrible happens, 150mg turns me into a cat - all I want to do is eat, sleep and watch TV (with not a care in the world). So I've settled for a 75+37.5 XR. With those tabs I've tried every combination of morning or night. Nothing works.
My single frustration with this med is the tiredness. I can sleep 13 hours if I'm allowed to. That is what I need to feel well rested. It's maddening.
My GP doesn't seem to be willing to throw in anysort of stimulant into the mix. I've asked about modifinil and that's a no-go.
Do I just go back to my GP and vent my frustration in hopes that I can combo it with something else or give up on something that works for me?
