I've been on Venlafaxine now for about 8 - 9 weeks - nearly two weeks ago it started to be effective, my mood has been getting better very gradually, anxiety decreasing, all going well - until today when I have crashed again, really down and anxious.
I've always been a heavy drinker, not alcoholic, but it's very much part of my social life. Several pints at the snooker club, the same out for a meal every week, very often a bottle of wine or more most other nights. At the start of this episode of anxiety and depression I stopped drinking almost altogether, but in the past few days I have had the occasional drink without it apparently having any ill effects (I know I should avoid the demon drink, but I have been on Venlafaxine before and drank then with no problems) Yesterday I had three unplanned pints on the afternoon with friends I hadn't seen for a while, and was feeling so good I had best part of a bottle of wine last night - I'm assuming this was the reason for my feeling so bad today, but it would be nice if someone could confirm from a similar experience?
