Customer Question

I have been taking Dosulepin 75 mg for 8 years now and have got along OK on this dose, however this year I have been made redundant and have then been involved in a relationship which has ended rather unsatisfactorily due to him saying he was separated but then actually turned out he wasn't or seemed to change his mind from day to day!
I am working in 2 part time jobs now which pay a third less than what I used to earn and my brother is marrying someone very soon whom I do not get along with for various reasons - I do not have any other family support - basically the whole situation I am is leaving me feeling very depressed and I am now taking 100mg dosulepin to sleep, I still feel very down though and the dose makes me feel very tired also, is 100mg quite a high dose or are there any other medications similar to Dosulepin which you could recommend, feel like I am really struggling at the moment and would appreciate your help
