    Hi Hilda. These meds can take between 6-8 weeks tokuck in and feel the full benefits if them. Try and be patient. Drink lots of water, try and minimze ur sugar intake and get some exercise. I’m no expert on Ven by any means. Speak with ur phamacist if you need reassurance on how long they take and possible side effects. Best of the day to you.

    Hi Hilda I agree with John it does take time to fully feel the effects patience is needed at this time of adjustment for you but be assured you will get better try to take each day as it comes .I know how hard and frustrating that feels to be told go with it relax towards it take care xxx

      Hi Hilda. How are you feeling today? I have been taking 75mg of the Prolonged release Venlafaxine for exactly 5 weeks today. I have had some calm moments but am feeling quite jittery today, for some reason. Do you get an anxious, jittery feeling some days since you have started taking this? I hope it settles down for us both soon!

      Hi Hilda . Yes I feel like that sometimes - almost if I'm detached from things. It's called depersonalisation I think. It's where our brain chemicals are altering and it should ease off as things stabilise. I have been feeling more anxious these last few days so I really hope that goes soon and things settle down. I don't really want to increase my dose as I know it's hard to get off.

      Yes i heard its hard to get off antidepresants. Hopefully that anxious feeling goes away for you, today i realized that my spaced out and dreaming feeling went away and know i just have this feeling like i am not in this world and confussed 😐
