Been off work 7 months now with anxiety and depression, was on Citalopram for 15 years and been great until this year. So the psychiatrist decided to change me onto Venlafaxine about 5 months ago. I've had up spells where I've felt more like my old self (for several days/even weeks)but it never lasts and now 4 months in on 150mg I'm anxious, really low, very emotional and feel like I'm slipping back-its so scary and I don't know what to do. Felt like I'd improved and was well enough to go back to work in one of my 'up' spells but suddenly I've gone right down and had to be off work sick again. Something feels wrong, and surely after 4 months I should be getting better, not worse. Don't know whether I need to ask my doctor/psychiatrist to increase the venlafaxine or try something else. Has anyone experienced similar after several months on 150mg of ven.? Any advice would be sooo much appreciated, I'm getting desperate x
