Hi I had been taking venlafaxine for 4years at 150mg with pregablin 150mg. After putting on 4 stone went to doctor and she changed me to sertraline which I took for 5 weeks before anxiety came back with a vengeance. Back to go who increased me to 100mg sertraline and only lasted 3 days before going back to go. She has now decided I need to be back on venlafaxine so I stopped the sertraline and started on 75mg 1 week then up to 150mg on second week. Was managing fine till Thursday when I cried all day had terrible thoughts. Back to gp and now taking 150mg venlafaxine morning and 75mg at night but the anxiety is still awful yesterday I had to take kids to Christmas display and put a face on I wanted to feel happy as I love my kids and Xmas but I’m finding this so hard just now. Had to take diazepam 2mg yesterday but doctor said iv only to use them sparingly?? And help and advice will be greatly appreciated.
