I have suffered on and off with clinical depression for 25 years and when I stand back and look at how much I have achieved despite this horrible illness, I am quite proud. But all my efforts to hold down a full time job could come crashing down as I have been accused of gross misconduct at work - being rude to a visitor at a visitor centre I manage. I know for a fact that it was due to withdrawal from duloxetine - which my GP has put me straight back on at a higher dose!!!! I am not an aggressive person and this was very out of character. has anyone else experienced the loss/possibility of losing a job in this way and can the drug withdrawal be a mitigating circumstance? Thanks
