I suffer from recurrent moderately severe depression. Ive been on Venlafaxine for about a year now. Previously I was taking the \"Californian Cocktail\" of Citalopram and mirtazipine but the weight gain of 3 stones and sedation to the point of regularly falling asleep at my workdesk and whilst driving convinced me it was not [i:27a2521d53]really[/i:27a2521d53] for me - though it did relieve my depression. :lol:
My current dosage of venlafaxine is 375 mg per day (thats five 75mg slow release caps) having read through most of the posts here I cannot find anyone on this level of dosage.
Am I a lab rat for an experimental psychiatrist? :shock:
My depression has largely been under control for most of this last year on Vn and the worst side effect, after the first two weeks, has been in the bedroom department :oops: but I am concerned at the long term health implications of this medication. Also and over the last 2 months my depression has slowly been returning which has prompted me to return to my psychiatrist.
Has anyone else had a similar experience of using Vn for a long period at this high dosage?
