Hi all who have recovered from depression with Venlafaxine or are a bit further in their recovery. I have been been unwell for quite a while now and being on Mirtazepine by itself brought me down to the darkest place I could ever imagine. I have been getting really bad anxiety since August related to being still depressed. I have just started 8th week on Venlafaxine (2 weeks in 225) and my anxiety related to not improving has calmed slightly down in the past 2 days. However my mood is still depressed and flat. I have been able to do little jobs such as cleaning or small shopping to distract my mind but I still have no interest in things I used to like doing. Does anxiety usually improve first and then mood? I know it takes up to 6 weeks to feel better after each increase but I feel mentally and physically exhausted by my stubborn depression.
