Hi Im new to this but here goes...I have been off work with depression for coming up to a year. I was on Citiliapram? but five weeks ago was put on Venlaflaxine 150mg. I have now ended up in hospital on an acute mental health ward having been unable to eat or get out of bed for 10 days. I believe the depression just took hold of me and I couldn't fight it any longer.
I take Zopiclone at night as I cannot sleep with out it. I am an ordinary bloke.
In the mornings I have to force myself to get up get dressed thats if I get up in the morning.It takes hours to get going. Suicidal thoughts constantly enter my head and i have to think them away. My head has a constant dull feeling and any energy i muster can evaporate at a moments notice. I hate going out in case i see people i know as to them I look so well...i have lost 2 stone. I have now lost my job having been in it 29 years.I have forgotten what normal is. I was the life and sole of any party. Will Venlaflaxine save me and return me to the man I once was as my wife would like to know. I hope to be out of hospital soon and have support from a local mental health unit. Is it me ,the drugs or the depression Help. Thankyou
