I checked , and nausea is a common side effect of venlaflaxine. Hopefully it will be temporary for you.
At least the British prison doctor is up to date with things. It is sad that so many doctors lack compassion though. I find it much harder to trust cold people, no matter what their job is .
I take quetiapine , and have regular ECG s, and blood tests for diabetes. I think all the antipsychotic meds are prone to these risks , partly because they have a tendency for putting on weight.
Having had an eating disorder for over 30 years , this does not apply for me.
Do you think they may suggest a mood stabilizer instead. ? I have found these work well, but do not give the sedation many antipsychotics offer.
I hope this week brings you some peace. Xx
