I have often commented in the past about the ineffectiveness of anti depressant drugs. After going through major issues, very traumatic ones, I have suffered from depression and pretty bad addiction issues.
I've been on venlafaxine for years. But it's of no use. It's got to the point where I can't stop taking it as my life is just finely poised at the moment and the doctor doesn't want to do anything that could upset that. After really accepting that drugs do not really work, I've tried to practice what I preach and do things like exercise getting myself out, trying new things etc. This has been really really hard for me and to be honest, even though I've battled and am winning my addiction problems, I am still hugely depressed. I mentioned to the doc about taking a new drug not so much that I think it will cure Me,but more I will take anything I can get that might ease it somewhat.
So he reluctantly said maybe mertazapine
I was wondering if anyone's been in a similar situation and what did you do?
I find there can be alot of scare mongering on here, especially with regards to meds and isolated bad experiences, so I'm not really looking for info on withdrawals. Just anyone who decided to try this medication.
