Hi, I've just turned 18 and have been taking venlafaxine in many different combinations and doses for the last 6 months. For the last 2 months I've been taking 225mg XL prolonged release along with 3 other types of drugs. However, last tuesday it was increased to 300mg and since friday I've been feeling unbareingly low and helpless and had a slight relapse in symptoms. I'm starting uni and really cannot afford to go this down hill again but I'm finding it so hard to fight.
I just wanted to know if it could be the increase by 75mg which is causing my distress or whether it's likely to be unrelated?
Any ideas, opinions or personal experience would be massively appreciated as I feel so confused and upset about my mood dipping like this again. I know some days are better than others but the difference in my mood for the last 4 days has been massive and I don't know what to do.
Thank you so much for anyone who has read this and please please comment your ideas if you want to whatever they are!
Sorry for the massively long post I am just so confused at the moment!
