Hello and welcome to the forum, you joined the best place here and made a big choice in asking for help and members will try and help. Depression can be so draining on us at the worse times going and nothing seems to help us, but just plain talking can and does help too. Have you spoken to your GP about how you are feeling ?

Welcome. I'm sorry you're in such a dark place. How long have you been suffering with depression?

I'm very sorry you lost your mother. Are you close to any other family?

Hi Mrpukkapie. Welcome to the forum. I think if your GP increased your dosage, I wouldn't consider that to be an overdose. Or did you increase the dosage on your own?
