    Despite what Ema says meds are often the lifeline you need to get well, when thrown a lifeline you don't compkain about the colour of the rope.

    Venlefaxine is a great antidepressant and anti anxiolitic drug, your on quite a low dose but it is very effective and has been my lifesaver for years. I've never taken Martazapine but I've had it with Buspirone, Propranalol and Diazapam, I no longer take those three but take Olanzapine instead with Venlefaxine and noticed the improvement within days.

    Getying fresh air, exercise and eating and sleeping well also helps.
