    That sounds like a really, really positive appointment.

    If you are off sick, it means you are off sick - not incarcerated. To get well you need to go out, you need to socialise and you need to follow the suggestions of your care team....
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    Yes he's been in the same situation when he was describing how he felt at the time I sat there thinking this guy understands as the way he was feeling was almost the same.

    Looking forward to seeing him again just a bit worried we'll clash over the mirtazapine.

    Spoke to a few people on twitter last night after watching the nadiya anxiety documentary and was recommended the following book by Paul David At Last a Life so I've ordered that hopefully I have the patience to stick with it.

    There’s no need to clash over the mirt, there may be alternatives. Actually, I was just writing the DWD Facebook post for Sunday and it is about comparing the different ADs so have a look at this from Mind, it might give you ideas to talk to him about

    I absolutely agree with Paula. He seems so positive for you and that he actually listens. There are so many options, but at the end of the day he can't make you take them if you don't want to.....

    I couldn't agree more with suzi. Part of getting better includes going out and facing the world and doing the things you want to do...little by little, or as much as you can deal with. If you happen to be seen out by work colleagues or bosses and are questioned, then simply tell them you're out and about so that you can go back to work as soon as possible. My guess is though that they'll try and be as understanding as possible. Let's face it, who in their right mind would want to be at home feeling lousy? It certainly isn't because they have B all else to do is it? Where I live MIND have their own cafe and drop in sessions to accommodate everyone. It might be worth it to 'drop in' on one of them and make new friends.

    Thought I'd post an update.
    I finally had enough of the side effects duloxitine was causing me so I spent 2 weeks at 30mg down from 60mg and then went cold turkey...

    After going back to the doctor's for my appointment he's now put me on venlafaxine 75mg and he's hoping they don't cause me side effects,tbh I'm at the point now where I'm starting to think I'll be better off on no medication but I was willing to give these ago. I've currently been taking them for almost 2 weeks and apart from feeling really tired I'm still suffering with side effects Mainly sweating.

    The doctor mentioned if these didn't work he's referring me to a CMHT.

    I’ve been on venlafaxine (375 mg) for years. for me, yes if I miss or am late with a dose I feel awful (withdrawal is the worst of all ADs I’ve tried), but otherwise the side effects were minimal after the first few weeks

    I found out my sister's on it as well.

    The doctor said it could take over 2 weeks for the duloxitine to be out the system worst case 2 months....

    Main problem is I'd like to go out without having to worry about my t-shirt getting soaked from sweating mainly my back area,which only started right back when I was on serotonin.

    Doctor told me to take it in the morning as it tends to give people an energy boost and I'd struggle to sleep on it,although my sister takes it twice a day morning and night??

    My husband is now on Venlafaxine - again he had tiredness, but much less side effects than with any of the others. It's actually been a complete game changer for him and for all of us.
