It's a month down from 225 mgs venlafaxine to 75 mgs. Same time I'm now up to 30 mgs fluoxetine. The venlafaxine wassn't working after years of being on it. Increasing/adding fluoxetine and reducing venlafaxine are concurrent over the past 4 weeks. Felt it would be a good way to go from venlafaxine to fluoxetine in the hopes I'd be less depressed. However, I've been experiencing the same depression with inability to sit still and a complete shutdown of appetite. I guess I'm experiencing some anxiety as I take lorazepam to help that.
Is this temporary? A result of the venlafaxine reductiion? A result of the fluoxetine addition? Both? Do I need more fluoxetine? Has anyone ever experiencing this kind of anti depressant switchover?
