Venalfaxine

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi everyone

How's everyone doing today. I haven't been on here for a few days as I've been in bed. Side/depression/flu has taken its toll and haven't been able to get out of bed and sleeping for about 18 hours a day!

I don't know if it's the Ven that's making me worse or my depression.

Thanks

Neil

      Hi Sharon

      Thanks for your support I don't know what's wrong with me I'm so lethargic. Not sure if it's the Ven or me, either way I got an app with the doc on Wed so hopefully sort me out because I can't cope like this, I'm like a zombie! xx

      Hi Sharon

      Fingers crossed you'll be a lot better tomorrow you're stronger then you think. Remember when you feel more depressed it's the drugs that make you feel this way and not you.

      Thanks

      Neil xx

      Hi Neil I'm still much the same.day 8 without ven!! Waking up feeling really sick .. having to take zopiclone to sleep.. head feels like it's gona roll off. Any sound makes my head rattle inside .. high pitches makes a thud ..even to lift my head to look at something. .feel so sick .. phyciatrist has decided he's not giving me an anti depressant(citrolpram) to addictive he says .. even tho I have severe depression I'm getting another mood stablisor. . Hope to god it works ..

      Hi Sharon

      You don't sound too good hun, sounds like the zopiclone is doing this to you. I hope your doc has given you an alternative anti d. Who cares if Cito is addictive! You want to feel better ask if you can see a Psychiatrist. I'll let you how I get on later fingers crossed.

      Thanks

      Neil xx

      Hi Sara

      Got an app with docs o Wed so hopefully he'll sort me out. I can't go on like this it's ridiculous being tired and depressed all the time. Another thing I've noticed and others is that I space out! Don't realise I'm doing it.

      How you doing anyway are you still taking the Ven xx

      Well I still do occasionally zone out but not to the extent that I used to. Ive reduced my dose as far as able now to 60mg. Any less it's all over!! I'm sticking for a while to rebalance.

      Pleased you're going to see the Dr on Wed. You can not continue in this way it's not on. My heart really goes out to you.

      Lots of water ??

      Big hug X
