Since I have increased my efixor from 225 till 300 there has been a vast improvement in my mood from depression.When I originally cut down from 225 till 150 I had a real bad relapse.Went back up till 225 for two months and it actually got worse.When the doctor put me up till 300 it took about three and a half weeks for things to slowly improve ..
Not totally out of the woods yet but at least life is a wee bit more bearable.The moral of the story is never ever cut down on Ur medication no matter how good u feel.U have the medication for a reason and if things hit a low point on Ur meds go back to Ur doctor and he might give u an increase.The slight downside is they make you tired but rather that than going through hell.Hope this helps.Thank you for reading this

Thank you Poppy Doll.No room for complacency and will continue my medication.Few wee things still niggling but it's a vast improvement compared to where I was.
