... [hard gastro resistant] capsules. Prescribed for major depression & anxiety.

I am due to start asap and I would love to hear any advice anyone could give on starting them .
I guess I am nervous of taking them due to a very horrific ordeal from venaflaxine.

I stupidly spent many hours researching this med & have read some horror stories, which I never would normally have done.

Also, I can't figure out if these are slow release or not. The pharmacist I normally talk to was not in when I collected my prescription & the person in their place was not very forthcoming & simply instructed me to read the info leaflet. I didn't have much time with my GP to discuss this either.

Looking forward to hearing from anyone, this group looks pretty helpful.

Thanks in advance.
