    Hi, I've been taking 37.5mg of venfalaxine now for almost 2 weeks and feel worse than i did before I even swapped from citalopram. i went back to the docs on Monday and he wouldn't up the dose. i have been reading and reading self help books but all I want to do is crawl into bed and cry. i don't know what to do anymore and I am expected back at work in Mindsy

    That’s not unexpected tbh. It will take several weeks for the venlafaxine to really be doing it’s job which is probably why the doc wouldn’t change the dose. There’ll also be initial side effects. These should pass soon so you need to hang in there. If you’re still feeling this bad on Friday, ask for a telephone consult with your doctor and see if they’ll sign you off work for another couple of weeks or so.
    Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    Completely agree with Paula lovely. Hang on in there...
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.
    That mean that yesterday or tomorrow I might be a better person,
    but today's best is more than good enough for today.

    Delegate! You don't have to do it all yourself!
    I write lists and organise things as I go. It's the only way I can deal with things.
