Hi, I have been on and off sertraline for a good few years max dose 200mg for anxiety and depression. It seems it’s no longer working. I have been weaning off it for the last few weeks and will have a washout period of a few days and start Venlafaxine on Wednesday. The doctor has prescribed 75mg once a day. I have read the patient Information Leaflet and it says they are the immediate release ones and should be taken twice a day. Is this normal to be prescribed immediate release once a day? Surely it will run out mid way through the day. Sorry for waffling.
