Having read some posts I realise my problems are trivial compared to others but I wonder if anyone has advice to offer on the following. I have been taking antidepressants for 18 years now, occasionally increasing the dose ( with my GP's permission ) so that I now take 150mg of Vensir daily. By and large this works well and I can function normally but occasionally I experience sharp dips in mood for no obvious reason which can last for several days before normal service is resumed. During these periods the old symptoms reappear, though not so severely. My question is twofold:
1. Would increasing the dosage ( with quick release variant ) help temporarily or
2. Is there other medication that would provide rapid relief for these lapses ?
Any advice gratefully received.
