    Hi there,

    why did you decrease the venflafaxine? Was it your doctor's idea - because if you're feeling 'zombified' by a medicine the best thing to do is to discuss it with your doctor, so that s/he knows how you feel and can prescribe something different for you.

    It's never a good idea to decrease meds unles you're under medical supervision

    I'm currently reducing my sertraline, but only because I asked to as I feel better. My doctor gave me precise instructions as to how to do it.

    It sounds like you're fed up with the side effects of venlafaxine and propranolol.

    Please talk to your PCP or Psychiatrist about alternatives.

    And I just noticed that you asked, does it ever end?

    Yes, it does. I am better now after two years on the maximum dose of sertraline. I had therapy, too.

    So now I'm better, Anx - and you will be, too - give it time!

    When we take ourselves of certain medications given for depression and anxiety we can suffer withdrawal. If you want to be clean from your medications talk to your GP He will help you to ween yourself of the medication.

    I would take advice on withdrawal of regular medications
