I am sorry that you are struggling. Sometimes these meds after years or working, just stop working. No one really knows why this happens. Best to talk to your doctor about what is happening and see what options you have. You may have to try another antidepressant.
Hope you get some answers and releif soon.
Hi, Gaazz! It rather sounds, as janie has said, that your venlafaxine has *pooped out* after all these years. Talk to your doctor about your current symptoms and some options would be increasing your dose to the maximum maintenance level, adding an adjunctive medication such as Abilify or Rexulti which work in their own way but also enhance the effectiveness of your current medication, or possibly switching over to a new medication.
Best regards and good luck to you. I hope you feel better soonest. WC
