I was 29, I have tried every anti depressant going and was referred to a psychiatrist and he put me on 300mg of venlefaxine I moved house and I said to him that I'm out of the area and I need to be referred to the psychiatrist however my dr said he has specialised in psychiatry and he can fix my meds I also suffer anxiety and was given anti anxieties by the psych however my new dr has taken me off my regular meds and put me on duluxetine 30mgs and quetiapine 2 tablets at night and 1 tablet in the morning the quetiapine is a mild tranquilizer and I was always over sleeping for school for my boys and got into loads of trouble I have stopped taking quetiapine not the Drs orders but I couldn't function I'm slipping back into deep depression and feel only my psychiatrist knows what he is doing and perhaps my dr was wrong to undermine my psych???? I wondering wether to change Drs and get this depression sorted once and for all coz I can't cope I also suffer from brain shivers from withdrawals from venlefaxin and it's like a migraine your vision has like migraine spots and it feels like your brain is shivering as I get a massive pulsating feeling in my brain
Sometimes I wish I'd never started meds and put myself out of my misery in my 20s as all I've done since then is trial and error with meds I hate my life I hate being a shit mom for my 3 kids always being miserable for them but it's my kids that stops me from killing myself but I suffer every single day
what do I do????
