I have suffered from depression for as long as I can remember but only realised when it was diagnosed 11 years ago. I took Venlafaxine for 9 years and it changed my life. However, towards the end the effects seem to be wearing off and a lot of my old feelings started creeping back in to the point where I couldn't cope with a bad spell. I changed to Citalopram but after 18 months this just isn't working. I am now lower than ever and don't know what to do. I have started counselling but need additional help just to help me get out of bed in the morning. I was wondering if going back to the Venlafaxine is a possibility. Has anyone got any experience with this?
