ive officially weened off venalafaxine. i was on it for many years and it helped initially than stopped. i gained weight on it and on the medication i cant control my appetite i over eat. so seeing how it wasnt working like it use to i tried lexapro which did not work so it made me go back to the venlafaxine just to see if maybe it would work again and it didnt. i have been off venlafaxine for about a month now and feel awful. currently trying wellbutrin i dont know if it will work but we will see. i feel EXACTLY how i did many years ago in my 20s the reasons why i went on antidepressants is back full force. i feel it all again...the gut wreching anxiety, this hopeless feeling the world will end. im so fatigued, and the worrying thoughts are non stop. im going through constant crying spells and feelings of total anxiety like ill lose it. im looking for another way to treat this depression. the ssri and Snri drugs stopped the crying spells but id still get OCD like scary sad thoughts. i gained a bunch of weight being on venlafaxine which is why i dont want to start up on another ssri drug. im looking into trying 5HTP and SAM-E but this feeling is terrible. i had a bad year in my 20s and i just got depressed more and more and one day i couldnt control the crying and sad disturbing thoughts so thats how i got on an antidepressant. but now im off it and going through a nitemare

I’m with you here. Nothing has worked for me so far but I too was on lexapro with no results, then Prozac and sequel which made me even worse. I’m off to my doctor on Monday to probably try something new. I’ve read that ketamine will be available here soon but not sure how or if it would work. It’s the worst feeling when nothing seems to help. Good luck in finding something that may work for you.

Know that there will be better days for you. You were created to be happy. Create happy moments.

Also music helps me. Music therapy or listening to good and uplifting songs in youtube makes me feel and think better.

Also doing what I love to do which is writing helps me too. What do you love to do? What are you good at? Is it cooking, baking, gardening, doing arts and crafts? Do it and it will make you happy and even be successful.

Oh yea. Got that and been there. It feels like nothing will ever change. Video games were a good distraction. Do you have any friends around?
