Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Are you on any medications currently?
Are you following up with any doctor?
Please let me know.
Can you please name the medications that you have tried or are on at the moment.
since how long are you on venlafaxine?
Does it help any?
Have you been following up with your psychiatrist?
When was the last time you went to him/her?
Are you with me?
I think that you need to be followed up regularly with a psychiatrist and if venlafaxine is helping you a bit you may require gradual increase in dosage to see if your symptoms improve further.
you should not feel embarrased at all
I understand that but the best way to go about all this is to follow up with your doctor regularly so that he knows which medication would be best for you. You have to force him to listen to you.
Sometimes we require changing a few medications to see which one suits a patient the best.
You need to try your level best to cut down on your alcohol as well.
I understand but the best way to find answers is to follow up with one psychiatrist.
You also need some moral support from your husband.
You should keep discussing these problems with him frankly.
The more you can find people whom you can trust and discuss your issues with the better it will be for you.
Yes that is indeed the best way.
You need to find people whom you trust and discuss these things with.
that will help the best.
Plus you also require regular follow up with a good therapist that you trust.
