Thank you for your question.
I am sorry for the long wait that you have had to experience.
Actually your question, for some reason, was posted in the Drug Testing category which is why it took sometime to reach me.
Can you please let me know if you have any other medical problems?
Are you on any other medications for anything?
Please let me know.
I am not a drug testing specialist.
This question was forwarded to me by the moderator.
I am a family physician actually.
I am sorry to hear about your problems.
I understand it is a very difficult situation that you are going through at the moment.
I think that you also, most likely, need the venlafaxine to be changed to an SSRI or something else to help with your emotional state as well.
The best way to go about this if you cannot get into you rgynaecologist would be to contact your GP, if possible.
Can you get in early enough to see your GP?
Sorry for the late response.
SSRI are medications that calm your nerves.
They are not only used for anxiety and depression but can also be used in similar situations. They are a slightly different group from the venlafaxine that you are on at the moment.
I think that instead of the patches you would be better off if you were giving pills instead as that would work better.
