Thank you for the replies and support.
I've just started on venlafaxine one 75mg at the moment, increasing every 2 weeks. been on citalapram and fluoxetine before. I didn't know there were variations of it. Helpful to know about the timing, thank you. And thank you for your kind words
Avalon, that link is really interesting thanks. It's a difficult subject to approach with an adult loved one, let alone children.
Really hope the venlafaxine is going to help me but in mean time my son needs to understand why is mums such a mess
