@jimhd
I completely understand that meds don’t ‘cure’ depression, but it does make the off days easier.

Yes I did. Thank you very much. Will also help my partner understand why it is necessary for me to use them and to understand depression a little better.

We only have the capsules here.
Thanx all for the help. Ive spoken to my psychiatrist and my psychologist too and now have to face facts that I’ll be on them for the rest of my life.

It’s real bad. Decided to go back on it. Cold turkey is obviously not a good thing. For the first time in years, I cried myself to sleep and woke up crying too…

I have treatment resistant depression. Been on Effexor 225mg for over 2years now and it’s been going well. However, I no longer have medical aid and the meds are extremely expensive. So I decided to cold turkey. I’m only on day 2 now and it feels like I’m dying. I hate it, and I’ve been extremely emotional and snappy. Nauseous and anxious. The list goes on. How do I minimise withdrawal symptoms.
