Hi, I've been taking 15mg mert for a month now, I can't stop crying feeling really depressed, I get so wound up over silly things, I have a brilliant partner and we were so close but since I've been taking these I've been pushing him away I've convinced myself he doesn't love me, when I've calmed down I'm fine but once I've got something in my head I'm like a dog with a bone and just keep pushing. I have hardly any concentration my work is also beginning to suffer. I've suffered from depression for 20years but never been this bad, I've even considered self harming

      I feel worse now than I did before taking them, I was on citalopram until 2 weeks ago we phased them out gradually, but now I'm just on mert and feel terrible.

      Think you should book to go sooner I've had a lot of trouble on these but others find them good but still have side effects 

      would of thought after a month you should feel some benefit but if worse maybe you need something else ?
