Hello, wish I could help you but all can tell you is I have been on Venlafaxine for many years now and they have helped me lots not cured me by any means but helped. G.P put me on these after I lost my mum, but also on lots of other medication because of a back problem including Clonazapam, Diazapam, and many more like Morphine. So I am controlled by drugs unfortunately. I still get very very depressed more than I should but somehow and the dear Lord knows how but do.
Saying that my husband also my carer has been so extremely low to the point of not wanting to be around, our G.P gave him some anti depressants and they made him much worse, scared and upset at seeing him like this and rightly or wrongly I told him not to take any more of them, he had shook, trembled felt sick and was someone I didn't know while on these, and we've been wed for 38 years I didn't know him anymore, this is why I told him not to take them any longer. Results were after a week or so he felt better and had no more of these horrible side effects, G.P was going to up the dose but when he had his next appointment the G.P couldn't believe the difference in my husband and thought it was down to the tabs which he had given him, that was until he was told differently.
Not saying you should come off yours but just can't help saying and they may not be the right words as we are all different, but feel that our G.P's just give us pills hope they will work and their job is done, and if our frame of mind gets worse they just either give you stronger ones or up the dosage on ones that you are on
Either way if these side affects are very very bad, I would go and tell your doctor or someone you can trust entirely about them. Just wish I could help and advise you what you should do for the best.
Please, please do something about the way you are feeling on this medication as they don't suit everyone and don't forget to tell us how you have got on.
Try and see your G.P or professional as soon as you are able because we all care about each other on here.
Thank you so much for you caring advice..I’m so please that you husband got better without the medication ,🙏🏽for all you health problems that you are facing I’m sure that you need him so much!! God bless you ..wish you and you husband all the very best ... hugs and prayers on the way for both of you 💫🧡🙏🏽
