Hello Florence83

I'm sorry to hear that you were experiencing withdrawal symptoms when you posted earlier due to a delay in processing your prescription. I hope by now your prescription is available so that you have continuity.

As my PP and recovery were so long ago I am very lucky that I'm not on medication, except for blood pressure. It's very kind of you to offer to update the forum with any info. Take care.

So sorry you didn't get it today Florence 83, riding it out and taking it easy just as you say sounds such a good way, I'm not on Venleflaxine but am on Olanzapine, I too find I feel it with changes but just as you say I do find it passes. Sending you very best wishes this weekend and really hope you can have some quiet time xxx
