Hi everyone, I’m supporting my partner who has been suffering from GAD since childhood and was on Citalopram for 13 years till it pooped out at Christmas when he had a depressive episode and ended up on Sertraline for 12 weeks which was horrendous. He had agitation, insomnia and increased depression and anxiety. He’s since switched to Venlafaxine via his Psychiatrist 6 weeks ago. 37.5 for 2 weeks and 75 for 4. It seemed to be working at first but 6 weeks on the insomnia has returned and he’s back to feeling depressed and tearful. Can anyone advise if things may improve or should he go up a dose, he’s losing all hope anything will work and is terrified he will lose his job as he’s now on half pay.
