I have been on both but individually not together as it would be dangerous for me to be on two as I have bipolar disorder. I found Venlafaxine very beneficial but with all medication, what suits one doesn't suit another person, its highly individualistic. I am surprised that you are on two at once, that isn't a common thing I have heard about. He might up the Venlafaxine to 75mg as that is the normal dose for it.

You are obviously suffering quite a lot with your depression - I can understand that really strongly and feel sympathy for you on that.
