Hi everyone. Now I know this subject is not the same for everyone but I'm going to ask the question anyway...
Back in 2009 I went on venlafaxine 75mg. I was happy in my own life and went on them for my mood swings. They worked and I stayed on them for 5 yrs.
I came off them fully after a year of dose reduction, in February 2015.
I fell clinically depressed in the March. I have battled to stay off them for 6 months but my thoughts and feelings have got worse. I am now back on them after trying peroxetine. They made me properly Ill.
Worth thinking about if anyone is trying these drugs in that I've tried the SSRI's and SNRI's and the SSRI's made me poorly. Fluoxetine and peroxetine are of the same group. I've stayed on what I know and opted for the SNRI's.
My question is, is can your body chemistry change from the last time I took them? I had a few side effects when I took them but they lifted after about 2 weeks. I had another 2 weeks of feeling good but now after week 5, I'm getting side effects again. They aren't bad but I'm getting anxiety and I can feel slight sensations in my brain. I can cope with it if it lifts but I'm paranoid that these aren't going to work this time around.
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced any of these symptoms later into the start of their dose??
Thanks in advance,
