I have been on and off antidepressants for my severe anxiety for 8 years. Including citalopram, sertraline and now venlaxine which I have been on for the past 11 months.
For the past 12-15 years, I have been very into my sports, cycling (road and mountain), indoor climbing, hiking, and always run throughout this period. I consider myself of average fitness and have regularly run 10+ / half marathon distances in the past.
Ever since being on this drug, I just can not run. The most I can manage is 3/4 miles at a push, and after a good weeks rest from any other exercise! It's really bothering me, and I feel like I have no fitness at all, I get out of breath so quickly and feel like I'm running through treacle.
I have spent much time 'googling' for people experiencing a similar problem, but to no avail 😦.
Has anyone ever experienced this in ability to exercise on there antidepressants, SSRI or SNRI?
