I posted for a while on here over a year ago as had been on Venlafaxine for 40 years ! I was encouraged to wean off by medical friends and used the procedure of an australian lady ( OZ) cant recall number. She had weaned off satisfactorily so I used her ideas. It all worked very well till I got rightdown almost to nil and then the depression came back with a bang ! I finally went to my GP , crying all over the place and of course he was most concerned. I quite happily went back on the drug, anything to feel better !. After 2-3 weeks I began to feel so much better and thougnt I could be stable on tbe drug again. However , after a few months I started waking in the morning with depression. It would often lift during the morning. Now , I'm all over the place. Frequently have depression though on full dose of meds. I get lifted out of it when in company of others ( I am widowed and live on my own ( not very happily ) and generally am struggling ) I just dont know whats going on a d am wondering if theres anyone else suffering similarly ? I would so welcome some input .
