Hi, I have been on venlafaxine for 5 weeks, quickly moved up to 225mg over two weeks ago. My mood has not improved at all, and yesterday, for the first time in a long time, I felt very suicidal. I have suffered with severe depression for the last 8 months, my mood is terrible in the mornings but does improve slightly as the day goes on. I have tried Sertraline but had a terrible reaction.
i was then put on mirtazapine, which I'm still on, which helped the insomnia and anxiety but not depression. I'm still on mirtazapine, now with the added venlafaxine.
I'm petrified that I now have the type of depression which is resistent to treatment. I know for complete certain that I can't carry on living like this.
Any advice anyone? Please x
