Hi everyone I will be starting venlafaxine in a few weeks it's my first day on weaning myself of sertraline to 150mg, then week 2 100mg then week 3 50mg then I'll be tapering. I have been on sertraline for over 3 months now and it's done nothing for me also citalopram dude nowt for me (was on it 7 years god knows why!) I seen a pyschartrist last month for a evaluation I have had depersonalization disorder for 12 years and since September my anxiety is unbearable and I haven't felt like myself since summer last year, I feel like a stranger to myself at the moment. I dint think ssri's do anything for me and was recommended by my pyschartrist to be on venlafaxine. I'm always scared to try new drugs and to be honest I can't get more detatched then I already feel, I'm really looking forward to trying venlafaxine and I don't care about the withdrawals I just want to get better for now. Everyday is like living in hell in my own head. When will this drug start to work and how long do side effects last? What's it like after you have took your first dose? Thanks for reading.
