Venlafaxine, Ability and vitamins/minerals safe together?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi Everyone. Hope everyone having better days. Just wondered if anyone has had success with taking vitamins and minerals along with the above combo? I'm feeling slight improvements but worn out and weak and wondering if it's safe to take a multi vitamin and mineral supplement and possibly omega 3 to give my body some support and energy. Thanks in advance.

    I’ve only been on Venlafaxine 3 weeks and take vitamin and feel ok. In process of increasing so feeling tired/headaches etc.

      Hi Elaine. Thanks for your reply. Takes a wee while to get used to it. I'm on 75mg now (was on 150mg but was then diagnosed Bipolar 2 so they added quetiapine and ven was reduced to current level). Hope that your side effects soon go away and you start to feel the benefit. Have you had ven before?
