Your venlafaxine isn't working and your doctor needs to know that. Always report that your medicine isn't working so your doctor can adjust the amount or change to another medicine. Please don't accept taking a drug that isn't helping you. Your doctor can't help you without you telling him/her if it's working or not. If it's partially working, report that. Tell him the words you have written above and he will understand. I wish you a much happier existence once you get the right medicine in the right amount.
