Re: Sertraline 200mg starting dose

Hi Sam The advantage of starting ADs at a high dose is that they may kick in quicker. The disadvantage is that the side effects may be worse. It may be that he started you on 200mg because you were on that dose before. Can I ask why you stopped taking them? Or were you on a different AD in between? ...

Re: hello

Hi Laura You're very lucky to have a supportive husband. Many people don't have anybody! His presence will ensure you do nothing stupid.

Re: Sleeping as a coping mechanism

Hi lob I was going to say the same as rsxo. When I was having therapy for depression the guy said "don't sleep all day" It's cometely understandable but won't help you get over the depression. Instead it will prolong it indefinitely. You need to force yourself to be active, starting with s...

Re: Feeling depressed due to being single at 30

Re: Sadness

Hi Doreen I'm on venlafaxine. It took 6 weeks to start working. What dose are you on? It should be at least 150mg. If anxiety is main concern then you can increase to 225. For depression it can be up to 375mg. It seems a shame to have to change when you'll have got through the worst of the side effe...

Re: Needing to reach out

Hi there

Your story is very common. You are not alone.

Are you on medication?

You've got to end that relationship but you need to plan in advance where you can go and live presuming he refuses to leave. Horrible situation though

Take care

Isap xx
